In this drawing I tried to capture the edgy character of U.S. actress Talullah Bankhead and still bring softness to her face. I am captured by this goal I have put myself to harmonize a bunch of previous styles like impressionism, luminism, cubism, pointillism, expressionism and realism, and forge them into one. I am not specifically sure about this one. Perhaps the color saturation is a little too much although I hatched a lot of complementary color hatched strokes next to eachother. I realize it is hard work but the alternative, doing nothing and lead a comfortable life, is much worser.
