Portrait Drawing of a Young Girl (Degas) - Process with Timelapse
Hi everyone, today I would like to share my portrait drawing based on one the pieces from the master artist Edgar Degas. I achieved some likeness to the original but would say I have still made her look older than she actually is. The younger the face the more round it tends be and the eyes are larger relative to the face in children compared to adults. This drawing was still good practice for using charcoal as a medium.
Reference: Edgar Degas, Fusain et mine de plomb
Completed on A5 paper with charcoal and soft pencil for the details.
