Green spectacles Finished

I feel this one is just about finished I could do some more work on the hair and beard
but I don't want to put too much fine detail to detract from the face itself.

Thank you so much for sharing your progress. A wonderful portrait. You must be very pleased. I'm slightly worried by the unfinished part of the beard. It's the right hand side and corner that my eye keeps being drawn to. But that's just a minor point. It really is an excellent piece of work. I've never tried pastelmat, you seem to be able to get good sharp edges.

Thanks Jenni, I have actually done some more work on the beard after looking at it for a few days. Pastelmat is worth a try. I played around with some fur textures but thought it appeared very flat so will probably stick with portrait for this paper.
