Younger bust

Portrait by Kim Marchesseault Portrait by Kim Marchesseault

Here is the continuation of the previous portrait since I have changed models.  I learned a lot about the differences in the ages of faces by changing from an older woman in her fifties to a younger model of age fifteen. The area around the mouth in particular, the jaw line and they eye areas are so very different.  In a younger person, the eye sockets are more filled. The mouth is full. The muscles around the mouth are plump. The Jaw line is cleaner.

Teenagers are lazy! That’s the most important lesson. I have to wrestle this girl (my daughter) out of bed at two in the afternoon. She gets to sit there and read a book, but she’d prefer to lie down.

  1. Looks good, and hey, you can see the difference between young and old. I don’t know how many times I’ve made an old model look young or a young model look old and could never figure out where I went wrong.

    When I would attempt to fix it I would turn a beautiful woman into a drugged up hammered cowboy.

    This whole art stuff is a pain.
