What makes a portrait seductive?
For some, a seductive portrait is communicated through the subject’s pose or perhaps the lighting. For me, it’s all in the eyes. If you’re familiar with my work, you probably noticed my fondness for portraiture. I love how so much about the human condition can be understood simply from the expression in a person’s eyes, the tilt of the head or the arrangement of the mouth.
Here I was interested in capturing a goodbye moment. Whether it’s to a lover, a place or an era, that’s up to you to decide! This was also my second illustration on the iPad.
UPDATE: My son thinks this portrait looks like Claire from Jurassic World. I’m certainly not unhappy with that remark — I think she’s gorgeous, stylish and brave.
