Pencil Drawing 22"x15"

Musician, DJ, and model Irana Mancini sat for me at my home in Hampstead in the late summer of 2017. I find Irana is an incredibly beautiful subject to draw and paint. I especially love the whole 60's vintage style which she has, which works well as her style as a DJ.
This is part of my continuous portrait series featuring interesting character in and around London. This was the first pencil sketch that I did of her. I have known Irana for quite a few years and it is always really interesting drawing a face that you already know, as when you study it and look at it from an artists point of view you start to notice different elements about the subject's features. This drawing was a study which I am following up with 2 oil paintings. It gave me a chance to really look at her face in a different light and for me to get to know it in order for me to start the oil paintings.
