Amber in Profile
Amber has the most incredible long red hair, and I really wish I could work with her more often. Her career makes that difficult, but I think there might be an opportunity coming soon. Here I was mostly interested in her delicate profile. I slightly exaggerated the contours of her shoulder for interest. I also like the series of parallel diagonal lines created by the locks of her hair, the strap of the dress, and the arm on the right. In simple compositions like this I enjoy looking for these kinds of structural elements to make the design hold together.
