I found her in an art magazine and was so enthralled by the original artist's redition that I had to give it a try. What caught my eye in the magazine was the amazing appearance of ease and simplicity in the technique. An hour and a half later, I finally had to quit. I kinda like the face presentation here, but the hair is ...arrrrrggggggghhhhh.......awful. Oh well, I wasn't really interested, at the time, in the redition of the hair; it was the face I wanted to capture.
