I’ve recently completed a portrait of the gorgeous Anya Taylor Joy!
I haven’t completed a portrait in a very long time as they often take hours even days to complete. This was such fun to create because ATJ is so striking and I’m completely taken in by her eyes.
There isn’t a person I know who didn’t adore The Queen’s Gambit last year. Even non-chess fans lapped up the epic power moves, and who couldn’t fall in love with the amazing Beth Harmon, played by Anya Taylor Joy?
I myself have been a fan of Anya Taylor Joy since I saw her in M Night Shyamalan’s Split and Glass movies. She was also incredible in last year’s Emma. I recommend all these films to any ATJ fan!
I decided to have a go at one of the more iconic images from The Queen’s Gambit. Beth is staring straight into the camera as she sizes up her opponent.
Here’s the portrait:
