You finished! Oh my gosh. Dianne, it’s just wonderful! The face definitely is the grand finale. I love her focused look. FABULOUS. Love it.
Thanks Frannie! It’s been something really out of my comfort zone so I’m really glad that I gave it a go :)

This is beautiful, Dianne. I love the simplicity of the composition, the elegant lines and shading. Very well done!
