The Right Look

This sketch is after Sargent's charcoal sketch of Sir William Blake Richmond. As Sargent drew him, he's looking at you with a bit of an attitude, I think that came across in my translation. I'm quite pleased with it.

I counted up today and I've done 21 of the portraits in my Sargent book, half of them. I would like to finish off this project as I said before with a portrait of my own. To that I will shortly be turning my attention. My husband is going in for surgery in a few days, so I may not finish by the end of January, but we'll see.
