I do not consider myself a portrait type of person ~ I mean, I hardly even take photos of people! But this is an oil sketch in Corel X3. I must admit that it was only salvageable because I know so much about PhotoShop and texture use. Using impasto brushes, oil sketching, etc. is a bit over my head, but I dove right into the classwork today. I know where I wish to be and I am not there, so am just sharing portions of the journey.
Good week to you all ~ hope your holiday prep goes well.
