Artist's description:

A study after Ingres' portrait of Mlle De Haussonville in the Frick Collection, NY, who stares coquettishly out at the spectator. I was interested in the way the weight of her head seems to be perched on a single finger, and the rhythms and tensions that descend from the angle of the head an criss-cross downwards across the body. I often make studies after some detail in a painting, from reproductions, of an evening when the light is not sufficient to paint or see colour well. Drawing trains the mind in sharpness of concentration, and one learns a lot about how the original painter worked.

Materials used:

Pencil on Fabriano Paper
