Self portrait finished


The dress look a bit grey in the scan, in reality the highlights are brighter and the shadows more of a lilac colour.  I'm not sure I have got the mouth quite right but I will live with it for a while.

Thank you Maria, it is difficult to see the likeness in oneself but I felt I had represented the black and white photo as best as I could.

Beautifully finished Pauline. I like your unfussy style of working.

Thanks Sue and Janet. I am trying hard to work a little looser and not go for quite so much detail.
