Boy I just love this. Great job. Thanks for posting the process. So very helpful!
Thank you Nancy, I had hoped by posting that it might be useful.
Nice portrait and character study! Really good to see your progression—I'm struggling with a portrait from a photo, on my third attempt. Seeing these, it would be good for me to do a series of looser, smaller studies to explore, observe and be less tied to an end result. Thanks!
