More portrait practice, again following the same checklist as in my last portrait post. I used the same palette of red/black/ochre, too.
This time I spent more time in the sketch stage, trying to get it as accurate as possible. Then I got as far as the color and realized I’d still made the eyes too big. Ah well. I think I’m improving, because I spotted my mistakes much quicker this time. Training, training, training. Gotta get my portrait work up to snuff if my commission work is going to improve.
