Carol Update, Comparison Photos

I worked on Carol's drawing before she took it with her this morning. As you can see I deepened the shadows which slenderized her face more, moved in the hair line just a bit on each side and added more height to her hair at the top. I think the hair line around the face is reading better, don't you. Now this looks like Carol. Thanks for looking!

Next, Lawrence's wife requested I darkened his hair on his drawing just a bit. Will get that done so it can be delivered tomorrow. Here is a photo of Lawrence holding his drawing. It isn't the best photo but it certainly captured his pleasure with his present.

Gorgeous portrait. I forget how wonderful graphite can be.

Darkening those areas sure was the right choice Ann, it look more fleshy, more real now, great job! you have a good hand for portraiture

Julie, thank you. I'm pleased you like it.

Teresa, thanks! Darkening those areas really brought the shape of her face more to reality.

Rhonda, yes his expression pretty much says it all. He was tickled.

Celeste, I enjoyed seeing the photo of him too. I was pleased that it looked like him. :)

Wow Ann, what a beautiful portrait. Love how you've changed it. And it's great to see Lawrence's smiling face while holding his own portrait! You are good, Lady!
