Freehand from a photo

Today’s portrait is of artist Maria Leonarda Ascencio, known on flickr as M. Leonarda. I could list a thousand things I see ‘wrong’ in this portrait but I think I got some of the tired feeling in her photo that I was identifying with. I could have kept working on this much longer – except for that tired feeling I was having. I encourage everyone to browse Maria’s wonderful work here: www.flickr.com/photos/mleonarda/
Photos and other portraits of Maria can be found here: www.flickr.com/groups/portraitparty/discuss/7215762507605…

I also got a little bit of a better handle on the Auryn Ink App today though I can’t say I think this looks like watercolor, even dry brush.

We’re having a Portrait Party on flickr – more than 400 artists drawing each other! Please visit the Portrait Party at: www.flickr.com/groups/portraitparty/
