Portrait practice – Nancy


Hi Matt,

Happy belated (American) Thanksgiving! Here’s hoping you and the family had a nice break and a great holiday. 

This week’s submission is a longer form portrait practice using one of your images as reference. My goal was to pull together what I’ve studied in the Features of the Face course so far (I’m about halfway through – yeah, I know I’m slow 😆), plus the corrections from recent crits. 

Most of my focus was on the face, with less definition on the body. I’m swinging back and forth between being satisfied with the drawing and only seeing the glaring flaws (especially in scale and measurement), which meant it was time to release it to your eagle eyes.

Looking forward to your feedback. My apologies to the model for giving him a double chin. 🤦‍♀️
