Iím one week into my second portrait attempt (acrylic) - my last one was 1.5 yrs ago. The subject is my friendís father. I hope to gift this to my friend for her birthday in April, so I appreciate any and all suggestions and critiques that might help me improve it.
Obvious problem areas I could use advice about are the ear and the sweater. Iím really struggling to make the fabric/folds look right, and I have no idea how to improve the ear.
Iíd also welcome any other feedback. Itís sometimes hard to see your mistakes when you spend too much time with them.
Thank you in advance.
