More Heather

My last painting of my art class friend, was just a lead in to this painting.

I planned to make two pictures and to have a go at a large (large for me) canvas. This picture is 18 x 24.

I wanted to make this about the subject, so I have used Heathers paintings for the background and included her painting shirt and some of her own hand crafted jewellery

After not liking the acrylic ground used on my last picture I had already added it to this canvas so had to go with it, I used charcoal instead of the acrylic pen for my sketch.

I am living with it for a while as I think it is finished but I might just work the shadow side of the face some more, does it need to be darker? I cannot decide.
