ok, try again, this time in charcoal - here's an early stage (complete with lines from the board underneath, transferred by the rubbed charcoal background) -
which eventually resolved into this -
Too much chin this time, and still not the right tilt ... There are two further weeks to work on getting it right - I must say the prospect doesn't fill me with joy at the moment!
Everyone else is painting, but I'm not ready for grappling with colour. My (self-imposed) task is to learn to see - and while it would be interesting to "see" flesh colours, it's difficult enough at this stage to "see" proportions and angles and planes and facets. And tilts and chins.
