Barbara

Barbara from our session last week. 

This was done on a larger format than my previous portrait sketches (9x12) and allowed a bit more room to lay in a design.  I really enjoyed this one.  I tried to focus on not using black for darks and really explore what color I saw. I found there were a lot of lost and found edges in her hair so it was fun to play with the brush strokes to imitate the subtle change of light that I saw.
