“Redhead”

March 28, 2014

ENGLISH: I saw some pictures of Paulina and I was impressed at her rare features, a clean face with childish, smart, mischievous and dreamy-like expression on a natural bright orange hair, with pale, frecklish skin and blue-green eyes. I invited her to pose for a pencil portrait with the intention of studying her features to later on perhaps paint her. The idea of painting her grew on me and this is how it came out. With a big thank you to Paulina for giving me her time and posing for me.

ESPAÑOL: Vi Paulina en unas fotos y me impresionaron sus características raras, un rostro infantil limpio con expresión despierta, traviesa y ensoñadora, unido a un color natural de pelo naranja muy encendido, una piel clara con pecas y unos ojos azules y verdes. La invité para posar para un retrato a lápiz, con la intención de estudiar ben sus características y quizás luego pintarla. Sentí que no podía perder esa ocasión de pintarla, y este es el resultado de mi trabajo. Con un agradecimiento muy grande a Paulina por haberme dado su tiempo para posar.
