About "Head Girl"
I had been teaching a class using Sargent's portraits. Somewhere the virus got into my own drawing and I had the young woman, the mirror, the architecture etc. all on a nice little format in pastel. I did a bit of aquarelle wash before I put the pastel in and this made an interesting pattern on the right hand side. I called the piece Head Girl because she reminded me of a friend who had been such a thing and who alone was capable of wearing such a dress in such a place.
