November Sketch

I belong to a private portrait group and our November reference photo is by chilombiano at Morgue File.  Did this sketch today and am now waiting on critiques.  Since you don't see the reference photo I will tell you that the right nostril shape is off and I think the overall nose shape needs to be improved.  Once the sketch is critiqued then I will trace it to watercolor paper for painting.

I didn't pay a bit of attention to the nose - the eyes drew me in. There is a kindness in them that you have captured. Love the hat, too!!!

Ann, this is a great portrait sketch. Like Rhonda, I was immediately drawn in by the eyes that have so much life. Really well done!

Looks like a wonderful basis for a painting. As another commented, it has a lot of character that comes through.
