I would like to subscribe to the Portrait classrom as there is always more to learn. I have seen the teaching on the mouth, excellent. I have painted a picture of the Old Market Woman while waiting for Nick to dry. OMW is not finished but I would like to post it somewhere. Where would be an appropriate place? Pam.

Pam, post it in the portraiture forum, we'd love to see it! When you open up to the Portraiture Forum, there is a New Thread button at the top. When you click on that, you can upload your drawing and have it be in its own thread there. I'll look forward to seeing it!
