I had started this one a while ago but was too afraid to try and finish it. Hair can be terrifying! Anyway, this is the incomplete study.
And this is the finished piece.
Do you see the difference in picture quality?! I wish I could say that it's my radiant talent shining through but I must confess it's Derek's crazy scanning skills. I scanned the first one and he the second. Who knew scanning pictures was so involved? Thankfully, the second scan is a lot closer to the actual portrait so Derek saved the bacon with that one.
I really love doing this and I want to keep going.
