Portrait: Shirl

Here's a recently completed portrait for a lovely lady – it's her husband's mother, with a portrait of his father to follow, when they've decided on a photograph.

These portraits are to go with some she already had of her own parents, and had to fit in identical frames, so this is 28x35cm in size.

A detail of the brooch:

And an animated progress, from the horrible murky beginnings to the final product. I forgot to annotate this with times, and I really can't be bothered doing it all again, so if you want to know the sequence, it's 5 hours, 7.5 hours, 9 hours, 10 hours, 14 hours, 15.5 hours, 16.5 hours.

16.5 hours on Quill Drawing Cartridge. If you want to see a list of all the matericals I use for portraits like this, take a gander over here.
