cubistic portrait colored pencil drawing

Mira (2019) (sold)

A commission for a drawing of a young woman that I already painted 9 years ago. Then a teenager, now a young woman and an excellent way to study the same face grown up. Special request was it to use the same color combination as in my drawing ‘sans titre – 06-10-16’ (depicting Natalie Wood). I focused on the geometrical shapes, almost wave-like throughout the wave and kept it in my egypt fashion, because that is the state I am in right now.
