elina lowensohn

Strathmore drawing 130 gsm, 14" x 11".

this is another video still, at frame 26:41 in hal hartley's "amateur". i don't know whether the stunning elina lowensohn made so few films because she was not temperamentally inclined or because her brand of acting opened few opportunities, but this film is probably her best.

the interesting thing about her face, which is elegant and exotic, is that i wanted to standardize or "normalize" it through drawing. the spacing of the features was very difficult to get right.
