Took me more than a month, but I loved trying out the different styles of portraiture.

I really enjoyed the class. I am not a beginner so I was able to follow her as she sketched and painted. I think she should have continued to show how she gets the features lined up as she does at the start of the classes. I found the class challenging and I have improved my skills.

This daily practice is a bit of a challenge. The more you draw portraits the better you will get. I'd say just be gentle with yourself and expectations if drawing portraits is a new endeavor.
