Daily sketch "The Young Queen"

Artwork by Lynda D'Souza
Title: The Young Queen
Graphite on Manila Paper
I feel she needs a heart shaped mole on her right cheek..............just like a young Victorian Queen would have. Enjoyed rendering the softness of the lips and eyes.

Did I tell you I love doing portraits ? I love doing portraits. Something about the human face just fascinates me.

Daily Sketch "Matilda"

Artwork by Lynda D'Souza
Title: Matilda
Graphite on Sketch paper
This portrait was done on my sketch pad paper and I found the paper too stark - too white - for what I wanted the end result to look like. Plus it transferred quite a bit of the graphite on the page that went over it. Think I am going to stick to my manila paper from here on.

Daily Sketch "Grace"

Title: Grace
Graphite on Manila Paper
Been in India for 3 weeks and took my sketching tools with me but was too busy to get any sketchwork done. So plan to start again this week and have some great images lined up for repro.
