Unfinished, no longer


It was probably January 2012. I saw this beautiful magazine cover photograph, and challenged myself to sketch it out. I took the help of my art teacher to get the facial proportions right and began working on the fabric. And then, somewhere down the line, I abandoned the sketch. I cannot recall why. I occasionally looked at it with disappointment. Over a year and a half later, I unearthed it from the depths of my cupboard.

The model, and the portrait

 

I promised to spend a little time on it as often as possible. First the face, then the hair, then the finishing… It was test of my patience, and I almost lost it, as I quickly filled in the colours. And here it is, at long last, a former unfinished portrait, now complete.
