I went out of my way to choose a reference photo that didn't have a face (or hands).... so I am already in awe of the photo you chose to draw!!

This is a lovely study...great angle on her head and nice expression on her face. I'd like to see it finished!

Hi Sue Ellen. Welcome to the drawing events, I think they are fun.

I thought the one you chose was one of the more difficult ones, and I think you have captured the sweet look on her face extremely well.

I worked in St. Louis for 14 months in the 50s. It is a great city and great people. :)

i think that the tonal values that i can see here are great (know what you mean about taking images at night ...hopeless:D) the facial features are done really well, very soft.

Nice use of tones. You built the face up well.
