Inspired by Gottlieb's

Graphite on Bristol vellum . "Portrait of Victoria", as titled by Adrian Gottlieb, is the original artwork of which this one got its inspiration. I did this in between taking care of my new baby and it took for about 4 days to finish it. I am so drawn to marveling Gottlieb's rendition of the eyes that has brought tremendous challenge to my part. I think my version made the subject look 10 years older. The original work is, of course, by far better in all aspect. Click the title and see it for yourself.
