I've added the hair, eye sockets, and neck. After painting the neck, I had the feeling that the face wasn't dark enough below the cheekbone so I went back in and pretty much re-painted the rest of the face. One of my fellow artists wanted to know how I could work on such a small portrait and I told her that I'm imagining that this is just one figure in a hundred figure composition. I can see that the drawing of the nose and shadow side has gotten away from me a bit, so I'm going to use my original drawing and white colored pencil to try and get back to it.
