‘Margie’ by Mon Neylan



Pen, gouache, pastel on paper, A4.

Work produced at Saturday Portrait class with Margie, 26 January 2021


I chose this piece as I love the orange as the background. I had attended a class focused on patterns, so endeavoured to concentrate on this… but I ended up in a bit of a halfway house, not quite covering my background, but still giving it a good nod and being happy with the results. Margie was such a chilled out, calming model, the orange just for some reason worked with her for me.
