Book of Portraits, Part 42: Anastasia

I hadn’t realised that I haven’t worked in my portrait sketchbook since February! I have loads of images save that I want to draw but for some reason I just haven’t gotten round to drawing them.
So this week I decided to get on with working in the book again and to continue working in it as much as possible, hopefully at least once a day. Drawing these kinds of portraits really helps to improve my drawing skill and doing it daily could be a great help.

I chose to once again draw Grand Duchess Anastasia because my interest in the Romanov family is still very much alive and only the other day I watched a documentary on Royal history which covered the Romanov execution and the Anastasia imposter mystery which followed for decades later.
I would at some point like to do a project based upon this, maybe a picture book? But for now I will continue to draw in my portrait sketchbook while I pursue other projects.

Mermay Day 31

Just a little late, but here is my final mermay image! I’ve really enjoyed taking part in this drawing challenge this year, it’s been really fun and challenging. It’s also been amazing to see other artists’ different interpretations of mermaids.
