Well, after a busy day and being away from the house most of the day, and then finishing ironing my sweetie's shirts (a birthday present to him - he irons his own shirts .... isn't that just the best?), fixing part of the dinner (he did the main course - a recipe of his own invention that was really very good), doing the dishes,  and giving the dog a bath, I finally sat down to do a bit of drawing.  A very little bit.  I still have a few things to do before hitting the hay.  So, here is the start of my newest Master's copy.  As usual, I'll post my WIP and the reference photo so you can comment and give me suggestions.  It's just a bare beginning, but what the heck - you go with what you got, right?  p.s., Of course, now that I can see it here in the post, I can immediately see what's wrong with  the nose, just for openers.... but, that's why it's a WIP!!

Yes the nose is just a bit off but wow, you are off to a great start especially with the eyes!

I love seeing your sketches evolving out of nothingness!

You have bravely taken the first step. Very nice!

beautiful start! I can see that the more you do this, the faster(or am I just imagining) you get with the details. :) I am still struggling where to start everytime I do portraits
