This is a portrait of the terrific british actress Maggie Smith, here playing the character of Lady Violet in the tv series Downton Abbey. The portrait is made using graphite on paper - original size 27x29.5 cm / 10.6x11.6 in.
Thanks!!!! A little bit, to be honest1 It's not very easy to me to realize actually how long 'cause I've 2 very little kids, so in these days my work goes by fits and starts, intermittently... anyway, I guess more or less some months.. (Sorry If I can't be more specific... the joy of motherhood!!!! ^_^)
Yeeeeeaahhh! Life and everything!!! But I'm pretty close at least to the "infant school" - time, so from september I'm going to have some hours of breath and... I wish I can retrieve my time to draw once again!!!!
truely awsome. Maggie Smith is one adorable actor and your portait really does her justice! I am especially fascitnated by the way you worked out her eyes, their watery eyeball textures and the focus you put on them! The way they sit in their sockets, wrapped in elderly, paperlike skin is excellently done, too!
