Portrait Sketch - Speed Experiment

This is another quick 'sketch' done in about 30 minutes.  It's from a photograph, not life, and some of the proportions are way out but I'll give myself some leeway here as I was doing this so fast.  I was trying out some new brushes using a 'dry brush' technique in some places which works well for modelling the face.  Only doing this in gouache picks up the paint underneath so I wasn't always getting the effect I intended.  Acrylics for quick sketches like this might be my next purchase at the art materials store.

Look at you! Cranking out art after work and done so well, too! Wish I could find the energy myself.

Thanks Sherry - yes, I am trying to make up for not doing anything for a while. :-)
