A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to sketch my grandchildren. Problem is I could barely do stick figures, so I decided to do the pencil portrait classes.  I did do a brief before sketch and am too embarrassed to post.  Maybe if the "after" turns out good, I will post for a comparison.

Here is my eye submission.  Nose is complete also and I will submit shortly.

Paula j,

Gorgeous eye, except just below the middle of the outside edge of the left side of the pupil, it juts out just a tiny bit that makes it not look completely round.

The eye lashes are enviable!!

Great job Paula, I think that maybe  your pupil is not quite central, otherwise very well done. Great noses too  :clap: :clap:

Thank you Natalie, Mea and Sally

Mea thank you for noticing the pupil non rounding.  I fixed.

Sally, I also think that the pupil is not centered.  I will be much more aware next time :)

Here is my mouth

Getting ready for all the forecast snow here is Northeast PA.  Maybe I will get a snow day and speed up my class progress a little :)

Nicely done Paula, forecasters are saying lots of snow,
so you could be home bound.
Hope you don't lose power  :cold:
