Likeness & Character
Meredith Crimmins, portrait sketch by Igor Babailov
Unlike a painting study, drawing requires 100% accuracy and ultimately provides the artist with a greater understanding of the sitter's fine features, unique likeness and individuality.
LIFE Drawing Studies were very common in portrait procedures of ALL
the greatest Masters of Portraiture, including John Sargent , Ilya Repin  and others.
