This is a portrait of Selika Lazevski after a photograph taken in 1891 at the studio of Paul Nader in Paris. Not much is known about her but what little there is you can read in this Paris Review article by Susanna Forrest
As with last week’s portrait challenge, Young Lady in a Boat, I sketched this in Procreate on the iPad. I think you can see a vast improvement in just a few days. I’m really starting to get a feel for the Apple Pencil and drawing on the screen is more natural. I also know where more of the functions are in the Procreate app and have tweaked some of the pencils to my liking.
