I didn’t capture Natalie’s likeness very well (below in colored pencil), and when the sun moved behind a tree halfway through, the light changed abruptly. (At least, that’s my story for shading both sides of her face, and I’m sticking to it.) I did much better on Ching, though, compared to my first try last month.
A couple of days later when I was about to practice from a photo, I remembered that I really wasn’t happy with the portrait I had made of Natalie. I tried again (below in graphite), this time from a photo that I had snapped when she posed for us. I think this one captures her essence as well as a relatively good likeness. I still allowed myself only about 20 minutes.
