After a class with Jerney Marisha as part of PYHaS 2020, starting with a charcoal underdrawing, adding a wash of colour and then building up layers of paint. I went with gouache instead of acrylic paints and finished with coloured pencils.
It was a bit of a battle, the likeness came and went many times and one eye was stubbornly wonky for a while, but in the end I was happy with it.
Still wonder if the original quick charcoal sketch was better though ...
Learning so much from all the amazing artists on PYHaS 2020 - I've signed up for 2021 AND for Wanderlust 2021 ... well, now I'm retired I have all this time to play :o)
