A drawing of a flutist

This drawing was completed a couple of months ago. It was the forth portrait I completed for the client. The lady pictured is his daughter who is a professional musician. The photograph was taken in the eighties and the portrait was given to her as a birthday present in August. The client was delighted with the drawing.

I worked from one hard copy photograph. We decided to keep the background white as it worked quite well. The drawing was 20 x 30cm in size and drawn with graphite pencils on Fabriano 5 paper. I mounted the drawing in a neutral coloured mount when finished. I took some photos of the finished drawing below.
