Ozala

Started this one last week after an abortive attempt on a different one. I didn't realize what a challenge I'd set for myself. Who knew a headscarf could be so hard?

about 10 hours so far, moving on to the face and will come back and rework parts of the headscarf I'm not particularly happy with.

Wow! Those eyes are piercing - almost hypnotising! How did you manage to get them so dark Ken, and will there be other elements just as dark elsewhere in the drawing?

Nothing special. Perhaps just the contrast. Those eyes are the darkest park. Other than the headscarf but even that I'm holding back on a bit. I need to work the shading around the eyes a bit but may downplay it a bit to keep the contrast.

Thanks!

The eyes are still piercing, but they're much more in balance with the composition as a whole now because of the dark clothing. I should have known that you'd have more darks planned.

This is another winner Kenny! Congrats! I really envy the way you handle fabric texture and folds.

Thanks Laurene! This definitely was a challenge to myself on the cloth/headscarf....probably a few adjustments there and a few corrections/shading elsewhere and I'll call it done.

Appreciate your watching and comments!

P.S. wouldn't want the eyes to be unbalanced. :lol:
