Lesley 'Twiggy' Lawson by Paul-Shanghai Lesley 'Twiggy' Lawson by Paul-Shanghai
Lesley Lawson, widely known by the nickname Twiggy, is an English model, actress, and singer. In the early 1960s she became a prominent British teenage model of swinging sixties London with others such as Penelope Tree.

I drew this whilst on a flight from the UK to China, its surprising what you can do in a cramped seat, avoiding the turbulence and fighting off jet lag :)

Usual suspects;
Bristol Board A4 Smoooooth
Mechanical Pencils 0.3mm,0.5mm with 2B and 4B lead
Blenders and Tissue - (Tissue courtesy of Virgin Atlantic)

Let me know what you think......

An icon - I am sure you will agree. Especially for English people in the 60's (Like my mother :))

Thank you, I really wanted to make the eyes stand out. Twiggy had such wonderful large piercing eyes, I hope my drawing has captured a little of that :)

Wow! I looked at the bright reflection in they eyes, all the shading and the perfect skin texture, and I'm simply in awe that this is in fact a drawing and not a photograph. Well done!

Thanks Christie, you have made some very kind comments :)
Sometimes it is easy to work with such beauty, in this case the model in question is stunning and of course an icon of sixty's London - the original photo was in sepia, and I was going to add a tone to the finished drawing, but ended up keeping it black and white - glad you liked it :)

Yes I drew them really big! perhaps a little too big, but I wanted them to be the main feature of her face as she has such beautiful eyes.
