Throwback Thursday: Twenties Girl

Time to show off another of the images from my header, and this is the portrait that I call Twenties Girl.

I got inspired by this photograph of Louise Brooks and used it as a model for shadowing and pose, but didn’t attempt to really draw her. There’s something about the fashion of the period that’s really striking.

I like the colour choices that I’ve made in this picture. Blue and yellow works nicely together, and while the splotchiness of the yellow is due to it running out of colour it looks intentional. Like a wallpaper.
