The Sunshine Of Your Love (session 3)

Well, I didn't get a huge amount done today. I got the second eye almost done, working in exactly the same way as the first. It's SOOO important to get the alignment and size of the eyes correct. I've seen so many otherwise excellent portraits ruined because of the slightest of errors with the eyes. I put in some eyelashes too, these are really faint and understated. 
.Then more work on the hat. I've also begun to work my way down the face. I've just got some of the under tones on, next I will be layering more tone to create the shape and expression on the face.

You can get a better idea of the work on the eyes from this close-up. Not quite finished with them yet.
