Sylvia Plath by Marie-Esther Sylvia Plath by Marie-Esther
Sylvia Plath in the act of writing.
I wanted this portrait to look really delicate, suffunded, ethereal, vintage, yet pretty vivid...I hope I succeeded!

"I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am.”
Sylvia Plath

Dedicated to :iconshamanmick: who suggested this portrait, to wish him to become a great writer as well!

I think you've succeeded in accomplishing everything you set out to do. I love the softening around the lighter areas and the contrast with the detail of her skirt and the typewriter. C'est manifique! I think it's a marvelous rendition of Plath that captures her fragility and her strength perfectly.

Thanks for the dedication! :hug:

Of course I will, are you on drugs?

Btw I wrote a song come by and look at it. It's called Disdain. It's bitter but kinda motivational in a way.
