Best Bets

I haven't drawn a lot of portraits, but I enjoyed doing this one of my sister, Betsy. Perhaps I'll do more; there's something about that moment where it begins to look like them...

I love the angle and shadows that help form the likeness

It's elegant and beautiful, Maggie--and your sister is, too...

A nice feel to it. Love the single stand of hair above the nose.

Can I simply "ditto" every single thing said by others? Spectacular!

The composition is spectacular - your sister a beauty. Please keep sharing portraits!

That's lovely - it's really delicate and I love the pose. And if you drew around those strands of hair then you've got a lot more patience/self control than me! Really beautiful.
