Christina


A local artist who posed for me over two years ago is Christina, just after I had taken up portrait drawing.
. . .Graphite then was my only medium.
. . .Her lean face offered us a beautiful example of northern European beauty, with classic pale blonde hair, blue eyes, and light skin.
Now I see that I might have better described the shadows–to bring more structure to her features. This traditional method I had yet to learn.
. . .And not knowing Christina well, I only heard, a few months later and secondhand, of her untimely passing that same year.
