100 Heads: Head #59
I did this portrait of my mom this afternoon. I spent 30 - 60 minutes on it. Mom was a good sport about sitting still and not moving too much. A perfect model. I still struggle with the back of the head. How big is it? What is its exact shape? I need to do more skull studies to internalize the shape of the head. In this pose, mom was leaning the back of her head against the back of the couch. Don't know why I didn't think to draw the couch.
