Coming back to portraits


I haven't done a portrait in almost ten years. This is something I've been thinking about for a year and haven't had the courage to start. The few portraits I did then weren't all that good and it made me frustrated not to be able to do what I wanted. I think I'm a little more patient now, though my mail carrier might not agree as I attack him everyday looking for my art exchange package!!!!! Anyway, last week I did start a portrait and this is where I am with it. I know it looks strange at this point but not as strange as it did two days ago. Being on black, I think is very pretty, but does pose some color problems for me. This is day 4 on it and I figure I have 2 or 3 more to go. Feel free to leave comments if you like!

Do I recognize those beautiful blue eyes or am I jumping to conclusions?! You did that in four day? Incredible!

I was hoping you would recognize them since you know them so well!
