presenting 'Amber' 12" x 11.5"


I'm happy to call this portrait finished now.Amber has been quite a challenge with her paler coat which has meant for many layers of very subtle graphite shading to build up her shape and form without becoming too dark.i altered her neck slightly to slim her down a tad and have re-toned the background once again to try and achieve the perfect balance of tone in the image as a whole.She will remain on the drawing board until her portrait receives the seal of approval from my clients.

You're an amazing artist! I think I especially love this one because she shares my name :) But you're art is beautiful. I'm a painter and photographer, but I've always wished I could draw, it's a talent I just don't have. You definitely do though! Amazing!
