I like the crayon/chalk look to it.

I wonder, how would itlook with some parts, smeared !!
Just an idea.

Well done, not any easy feat, that's for sure. Do you have photo so we can see how close you came?

Crone, I really like your painting style. It's different and very refreshing! You're onto something. Keep 'em comin'!

Thank you all for your kind comments.

I have no photos of myself recently as I have just chopped all my hair off :D It was about 18 inches longer than this two weeks ago.

I have been work on my brush strokes and get away from using the blenders so this was an image free of blenders. It might be interesting to now go back and blend and see what comes out.

I am working my way through the 'Painter8 creativity' book. This was the first excercise and I am pleased with the outcome.
