Mary Cassatt, miniature portrait

Mary Cassatt by Shannon Fleet

Mary Cassatt portrait, by Shannon Fleet

2.5” X 3.5” graphite on bristol vellum.

This was my little tribute to Mary Cassatt.

Sometimes you love an artist so much, you have to draw them to get it out of your system. This one kind of blew out of me, I can see all of my little errors now, but the experience and practice was all that I wanted here.

This is also one of the few drawings that I created with just a first draft. Long story, but I like to draw things multiple times, I call them drafts. I want to make sure that I’ve mastered and learned something from every subject. This is also the reason I take forever to finish anything!
