I have brightened the hair a bit more. Also, believe it or not, I used Prismacolor Black Grape in the darker areas and it really works well. I am very happy with the results.
Now, a bit more work on the facial features and this portrait will be complete.
This is good news since I need to work on a new rush commission that just came in, as well as create a few new pieces for the art show at Williams in November.
I will not be sharing the new commission on here until it is finished and the recipient has the portrait delivered. It is a special birthday gift and I would hate to ruin the surprise.
