I followed a great tutorial by queeniepatch.blogspot.com
She has done amazing portraits, which you can see on her blog.
first attempt: eyes look bit squinty and brows are uneven. And, I did not add any extra details to her.
for the second one I tried to make lady wearing a saree. I could not get the eye lashes long, and the nose is bit puckered too.
I am happy with my third lady. Her hair is inspired by Mrs.Slocombe's character from 1970 s British sitcom " Are you being served?" She used to wear different hair colour every day to work (almost) and big fancy earrings.
adding colours to Catherine wheel...
till next time,
