You have a nice loose drawing style......do you intend to develop the drawing further or is this a study for a painting?
cheers kim

Hello to a very new poster and thanks so much for favouring us with your work. :wave:

I find that his mouth appears a little vague and in need of defining. It seems to draw my attention straight to it with a question mark. My mind seems to require that I decipher what is or isn't happening there before I can move on and that stops me from enjoying the rest of the piece.

Cheers and thanks again, Dianna

....Thank you for your post.... I revisited the work…..your input was very helpful …. I can now see refining the mouth is needed……this was exactly the kind of information I was hoping to gain… thanks again.
