Jun 14 Natalie Portman Black Swan drawing
As a big fan of Edgar Degas‘ ballerina drawings and paintings, I’ve always wanted to draw ballerinas or dancers myself. After watching Black Swan recently, I had to do Natalie Portman. I’ve always thought she has this classic beautiful face. Her as a ballerina… just perfect!
I picked textured blue paper instead of white for the surface, to be faithful to the original photo which had blue background. It also helped make the white on her feathers pop and alive. I used Prisma colored pencils.
