Scarlet ?? Nooo....

Ho eseguito questo sketch da una foto dell'attrice Scarlet Johansson , ma come potete ben vedere, la somiglianza è ben poca....

I did this sketch with a reference photo of the actress Scarlet Johansson, but as you can see, there is no great  likeness ....
Charcoal sketch / sketch con carbone

I was among the lucky ones to win one of http://lauraleeder.blogspot.it beautiful cards, thank you so much dear Laura, , I will keep it dearly together with my other blogger friends give aways.

Sono stata fra le fortunate a ricevere una delle bellissime cartoline da http://lauraleeder.blogspot.it , grazie mille cara Laura, la terrò tra gli alti preziosi 'give aways' degli amici blogger.

  1. Cara Jane,a volte un bel volto espressivo è meglio della somiglianza.Io non ho in mente questa attrice per cui mi "godo" completamente il ritratto!!!E' simpatico che tutte e due(che prontezza!) abbiamo avuto i biglietti da Judy e Laura!!!Un abbraccio!

  3. It is a beautiful portrait.. as I have no idea on who Scarlet is, I can't tell on likeness. But she's beautiful nonetheless! xx

  4. Je ne connais pas cette personne, mais peu importe. Ce portrait porte une expression, il est touchant et j'aime comme tu lui a fait sa chevelure.
    C'est un très beau cadeau que tu as reçu.

  5. No.., you're wrong, I see some resemblance,but i think it is very difficult to paint faces ore not? I love the painting anyway, resemblance or not ☺ The card is great too. Lucky you LOL hugs from janine

  6. Estimada Jane: fabuloso retrato que guarda una gran semejanza con la actriz. Un trazo suelto que da gran ligereza a la obra. Enhorabuena.

  7. It came out very beautifully anyway :) I think she looks like Gillian Anderson from the X files!

  10. Creo que no importa mucho si el retrato se parece o no a la actriz (a menos que sea ese tu objetivo!), para mi lo importante es destacar tu trabajo, que lo aprecio con mucha sensibilidad y buenhacer. Tiene oficio y talento. Por lo tanto: felicitaciones miles!

    Y esas flores..."Pensamientos", se les llama aquí, están preciosas!

    Besos y abrazos!

  11. Querida Jane, creo que hay más cosas positivas en este retrato de las que tú ves. Por ejemplo, creo que la mirada y la expresión que transmite, son Scarlet. La boca, y el pelo, también. Quizá en tu retrato, en las proporciones entre nariz-labios, mentón-labios, o la largura del óvalo de la cara haya pequeñas, milimétricas desproporciones, que, efectivamente, no calcan el parecido. Sin embargo, y lo más importante en mi opinión, la esencia, la psicología, el sentimiento interior de la actriz, te aseguro que está ahí. Desde luego yo, prefiero un retrato imperfecto, pero con vida, a un perfecto calco sin vida...así pues, creo que tu Scarlet, sí es Scarlet.

    Bises

  12. Pretty girl regardless. Likenesses are very dependent upon noting strategic points--eye width under eyebrow, nose spread, etc. Laura does do some beautiful cards. I particularly admire her pansies. She has a nice touch too.

  13. Hola Jane, has captado la esencia de la actriz. Claro que es un retrato chulísimo y además tiene su parecido.

    Un fuerte abrazo

  23. Hi Jane. Das Portrait hat zwar nicht so grosse Ähnlichkeit aber ich finde dass Du sehr gut weich zeichnen kannst. Die Blumen sind natürlich fantastich. Kompliment zu beiden Arbeiten.
    Grüsse Dich;-)

  24. Vale, de acuerdo, no se parece a la actriz (a veces depende mucho de la fotografía que se toma como modelo). En un segundo intento seguro que te queda divina.
    Un abrazo, Jane.

  27. The portrait is good, not Scarlet's one but the likeness is not most important. You are not a photo camera but artist, right? Warm wishes, Jane.

  28. Jane, I think there is something of yourself in this portrait, although the mouth resembles Scarlet's. It's a good work! Let likness for photographers, as Maga already said! xx

  29. Hola Jane, el retrato es muy difícil, pero en este caso tu trabajo ha quedado perfecto, en expresión, matices, sombras, lo de menos es el parecido, ya que de lo que se trata es de pintar y disfrutar. Un beso.

  42. Hi Jane, this is lovely! I have a magazine with Scarlet Johannsen in it and just started drawing her the other day! What a small world! The portrait is lovely.. charcoal is so forgiving.. I enjoy the feel of it when sketching! Hope you are having a wonderful week xoxo

  43. Scarlet or not it if fabulously done. I started taking faces out of magzines and TV guides ,,,just as a reference to help me work on faces. For me they never look like the person but it doesn´t matter....I just need to practice....
    like when the TV is on:)
