    Looks great – interesting method you have with the white pencil (?) to start the portrait.

      Katkasia, Thank you… I tend to start with a light pencil on colored paper. It keeps me from going too dark and trying to erase later.

        I’ll have to give that a go one of these days! I recently did a pen and ink, where I had used greylead to sketch the outline, as the background was grey, and then found that I couldn’t erase it as the ink smudged! You can’t really see it unless the light catches it at a particular angle when you can see the graphite shining.
        Never mind – we live and learn.
        Thanks for the tip!
