As I've mentioned, I'm participating in a portrait swap in WetCanvas and have been working on mine for a few days. Its in charcoal on mi-tientes paper. This is a little glimpse into what is emerging from my paper.
I'm considering doing a piece in colour, but I'll see how this turns out. I was initially not completely happy with the likeness tonight, but it came around after I tweaked it a bit more This image is the second stage, I've added more definition to it tonight.
I'll let it sit for a day or so and see what I think. I also love being able to stand back from it in my studio and contemplate angles, proportion, etc.
