Portrait from photos Linda

Hi Matt,

This is a scan of my most recent pen and paper drawing project. 
I spent about 4 days working from a photograph, actually two put together and edited.

Heavy drawing paper, Strathmore 11 x 14  Prismacolor black colo-erase pencil.

A Scottish countryside and a happy relative of ours on the trip of her lifetime. 

I tried to tone down her more robust characteristics to soften and flatter her in the portrait and still catch the likeness. 

I stopped the render when I felt it was getting close lest I ruin it.  

I tend to overwork drawings.    Her left shoulder for example…

Thank you for providing this online drawing course.  It’s been life changing for me.

Linda
