Nolan  :thankyou: for your word of encouragement. 
             I have more time to draw than you Nolan cause I am retired,  :yippee: no young kids, no teaching, no computer tech.  One thing, i kind of cheated a bit on some part of the face, I squigled ( figure 8)  :blush: i hope this is accetable.  I was loosing my patience, :pullhair: yes me ;D ;D ;D

Mea, you are nit picking me (a duck)  ;) ;D ;D ;D that was actualy Nolan's version I though it was the picture he posted on this.

Jay and Sally  :thankyou:  for the lovely comment, your encouragement is trully appreciated.  :)

Bev  :thankyou: as always for the encouragement.  Très bien dit ta phrase en français, toi aussi tu t'améliore dans ton français.  Merci pour ton effort.  - selfie not for a long time :) but in the near future I may make my daughter when she was young ( from a picture my hubby and I cherrish) but I want to do it in colour. So you will have to wait :whistle: :whistle: :D
Val  :thankyou: also for your encouragement.    O0  . Sorry I did not purchase the class for the bird. Trying to learn on my own for now.  It can become pretty expensive if I purchase all I want to do. $$$ :faint:

Wow this is not like me to wright a book. :2funny:

Cyril, well done!!!! :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Here my drawing-

I have been fiddling with it for several days and decided "enough is enough". This was a great ending for Portrait drawing and I learned a great deal from Nolan.  :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:

I did cheat on this drawing. Tried to erase out the whiskers, but couldn't get them light enough. Adding shading to one side just didn't work. Next I tried using a white colored pencil - didn't work. Finally tied one of my calligraphy "go to's" - Dr. Martin's Bleedproof White and a crow quill pen. Just to be sure I went over the whiskers a second time, once it was thoroughly dry.

Any comments or suggestions will be appreciated.
