Turning back time, January 2009

Art Drawing - Turning back time - Portrait - Commission
Thanks to Dominique for allowing the publication of the drawing

style: realistic
graphite on watercolor hot pressed paper
Time to draw: 49 hours

 

The concept of this commission is to draw Dominique the way she could have posed a few years ago, hence the title. To do so, Dominique took a picture posing the way she wanted to appear in the portrait (see below) and I changed her features a little to make her look younger. Then, she chose the clothes, the jewels and the hairdo that she liked in some magazines/shopping catalog that I then used to complete the portrait.
