Selfies, Sketch of Lynn Take2, Ann Hyde

Okay, so I have had another go ....practice, practice and practice is the saying isn't it...oh boy do I need to practice.   I approached this one differently from the previous and used pencil instead of straight in with pen.  I felt more comfortable with pencil and started with the eyes this time...

then I worked from the eyes, measuring from the previous lines as I went...

then a little more detail....

I was going to leave it as a pencil sketch,
but couldn't resist adding a little colour....

Could this be where friendships are made or broken...

hope you are still taking to me Lynn :-)


  1. I think you did a good job on this, Ann. Thanks for showing your steps along the way.

    1. Thanks Joan. I'm still practicing but was pleased with this version ...hope Lynn will like it :-)

  2. Good attempt Ann...It does resemble Lynn strongly :)

  3. Good to see how you do step by step, Ann. You have done fine on this portrait of Lynn.

    1. Thanks Sirkka......I like seeing step-by-steps myself, so thought I would add them here :-)

  4. Still talking Ann, how else could I tell you how much I like this one! Thanks so much for taking the time to draw me so attentively! Much a appreciated.
