Portrait Fun

On the Painting Friends forum I belong to, we currently have a Portrait Fun challenge going on.
I'm not that used to doing portraits, so elected to try this photo in one colour only. I used Burnt Sienna and this is what I produced.

  10. Hi Pat. Have not been by for a spell and thought i would say, hello!
    You are very brave to do a portrait. And in one color too! I love the way it turned out and the distant gaze is most captivating. Well done you!
