Portrait WIP

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.

Love today's effort and wonderful to see the front yard. Your effort in both areas are evident. Love the rose! MD

Thanks for the encouragement. The roses seem to have exploded yesterday - the bushes are covered in buds. I don't know what's in the soil around here, but roses like it.
