“Busy” pencil drawing

Posted in Art with tags , , , on September 27, 2008 by Pendant & Ring

I think portraits should capture the personality of the subject.  Expressing who that person really is. I almost included the bare feet with perfectly applied burgundy nail polish but then I would’ve ended up painting it, or at least using color pencils.  I really wanted to stick with just pencil this time.  So, yes, her feet are excluded purposely.  The drawing could have just as easily been titled; Purposeful, Dedicated, Determined or Responsible but “Busy” is best.  Whether she’s working or playing she’s always on a mission… always busy!
