Day 16 -- Progress on Trade Art for lilcrabbygal

Tonight my Deviant friend ziza-66044 came over with her son William for our weekly Tuesday night art jam. Instead of working on art for an article, I picked up the second piece of trade art for lilcrabbygal which was sitting around underpainted but not drawn on. I finally decided on Faber-Castell Polychromos for the colored pencils to use -- they get very fine points for details like Prismacolor Verithin but I have 120 colors with many blues, greens and neutrals. So here is today's progress on "Grandmama at Tathra" ...

The sky, the tree, the sea and the lady's face are pretty much done, though I may tweak a little if I notice things. I simplified the tree from the photo reference a lot, and I think it looks better. Hope it's reasonably accurate for that sort of tree though! lol

I feel so good about getting this far on this one. I spent a long time at it and it's coming out well. I did not relish the thought of maybe having to start over...
