Portrait: ‘Helen’

My friend, Helen, has a youthfulness about her which I think she will hold into old age. Some people are ‘young spirits’, they say. If this is true, then I see that in Helen and wanted to capture that in this line-art portrait of her. What do you think…did I achieve that?

Do you believe that a portrait is about just what can be seen by the eye, or is it also about capturing the essence of a person; something you feel or sense? Please share your thoughts, below.
