Portrait of a friend - by Deb

I had an especially lovely drawing sesh' with a friend of mine this week, in which we drew portraits of one another simultaneously. I get a buzz from doing portraits and drawing people, but I find creating realistic representations rather tricky.

This is my portrait of Jacqui. The resulting pic' has certain of her features, but mysteriously I've painted her both child-like and elderly all at once. The painting reminds me of a porcelain doll, or an 1800's child. The colours were more vibrant, my scanner likes to impart its own style to my art though ^^

wow wow wow debb!!! amazing. i forgot how good you were at portraits. i remember seeing a few of your many portraits of lasso. interesting how jacqui does look both young and old at the same time and yes, i totally agree that she looks like she's from another era...a girl from the 20s or something. most cool!
