As time permits, I've been working on the graphite portraits I posted for Illustration Friday a couple weeks ago. This is the finished drawing. I learned a few things along the way. I'll work on a toned ground for future portraits which should help with establishing values. My husband was helpful for spotting trouble spots, which helps me develop an eye for ways to improve. I know this isn't perfect, but I decided that it could easily become overworked at this point. I'm happy with my progress, and now it's time to try another.
