Lady with hand over her mouth, Doreen McPherson

Lady with hand over her mouth is characteristic of Doreen McPherson’s distinctive style. The strong sense of light and dark, with particular emphasis around the hair and facial features, is achieved primarily through shading with graphite pencil. There is an energy and urgency to the bold, heavy lines and a potent sense that the artist has captured the essence of the subject.
