Stepping out 2

Have begun to fill in the base shades. I always tend to start with any faces in a picture. It is at this stage things can go wrong, so I would rather make a mistake now, than in two or three weeks time! It's always interesting to see how the intensity of the colour alters as the deepest shades are filled in. In this case the background will determine the luminosity of the lighter colours. Around 4 1/2 hours work have gone into the picture so far. Sam ( my eldest son ) asked me if it wasn't a bit odd drawing someone without their permission. If you're out there and recognize yourself in the picture. Please let me know who you are and I'll sort out a framed print for you!
