Jennifer, it looks great so far. I like your use of browns, rather than blues for shadowing - much warmer. if I may ask, whose portraits are at the top of your blog site; they are so well done, and such handsome young men.
Well thank you! Yes of course you can ask! They are my three handsome cousins.. From left to right, Andrew, Luke, and Scott. My Aunt hired me to do the portrait as a gift to my Uncle.. Portraits make great gifts.. Thank you for your kind words..
