‘Concealed’ – detail of new drawing in progress

Pastel on Ingres paper

The inspiration for this drawing comes from my love of early Italian religious icon paintings. The model is my neice, Rachel. The finished (full-size) portrait will imageshow her wearing a headscarf with part of her face concealed (hence the title). I still have work to do to the eyes and modelling of the face so this drawing is in it’s relatively early stages.
