Here's a portrait I began this afternoon. It's from a reference photo on WetCanvas. There's more work to do but I thought I'd show the beginning anyway. Today was one of those tough days and by the time nap time rolled around I was ready for something comforting. A pencil portrait from a reference photo definitely feels comforting to me - thank you John Singer Sargent!
Enough chatter, off to finish my scarved lady.
