This portrait was a lot of fun to do.  It has some challenges shading-wise, with 3 areas of value.  The normal skin tones on the left, the dark shadows just off centre and the white of the paper on the far right of the face.  I finished it off with a black watercolour wash for the background and the gown which I think adds a nice touch, and it certainly helped speed up the process.
