Greta Garbo As Mata-Hari

A graphite on Bainbridge #80, 40"x60" portrait of Garbo as the spy Mata-Hari. 

I never been able to get a good picture of this portrait, is just too big and too dark. For reasons too many, I avoid drawing or painting large format portraits – unless of course is a bigger than life subject. Garbo's beautiful features are difficult to recreate, I draw and painted her face three times before this piece and had a really fun time in my hopes to do her justice.
