Welcome back, Rob, it's been a while. The last post I remember of yours was a few portraits of your children? Well, anyhow. This latest drawing has a broader range of values and a more "polished" feel to it, I think. I like the subtle lines on the forehead over her left eye and her quizzical expression. Looks like you must have enjoyed drawing this one. :) I don't recognize her, though, is she a famous actress?

This is the first I`ve done for a while.
It is Susan Saint James, she was in McMillan and wife in the 70`s, I think I`ve made her a little plumper than her photo.
I prefer not to make them too smooth and blended, I like to see some pencil lines in a drawing.

Hey i recognize her but then I am OLD! Anyway, just seems like there is something not quite right around the left side of the nose. Otherwise it's darn good! I wish i could draw half as well! :)

Good point, Sunny, I meant to mention that. And maybe the lips being slightly out of perspective?

I had not noticed that the lip perspective was out, the centre of the top lip should be more to the left.
Both sides of the nose are not quite right looking at them again, the shading on our left should be narrower and lighter, and the shading on the right should be smoother, less textured.
I`m not going to do any more to this one.

Thank you both for your comments.
