John Lennon in the kitchen. I traced out everything including the eyes, ete etc...hope that's ok. It' still was alot of work and patience to get the tones right and in right places. I had to tweak still...some of the original lines of perspective here and there.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

A great sketch. But I almost didn't recognize him without the Beatles hairdo. :clap:

Thanks for all the encouraging replies everyone. Most of the time was just doing all the different things. I did his face right at the very start to get it over with.

Val, not yet. I always give myself a break because Im really tense when in the middle of something.

Believe it or not.... that's what I was hoping you'd say!  :heeha:      I was worried you might slip back into pushing too hard.  :sweat:

I will happily wait to see what comes next.  :yippee:      :clap: :clap: :clap:
