The Side Eye, on the Easel

IMG_9484A bit of a departure from my usual type of subject, but her expression made me laugh.  Sometimes with commissions, it takes a while to find (or take) just the right photo; but not so, with Lucy.  The side-eye is an expression that she is known and loved for.

Just need to do all that hair which falls between the black shadows and the lighter highlights, which is most of it (she’s black, so it will get darker).  I may also need to emphasize the other eye a bit, but hoping to finish this up by the end of the week.
