Thank you so much for that. I've tweaked it a little more and think i've ironed out the little faults. I've put the final picture on the Gallery as I can't see much more that I can do to it. I don't really do portraits of people and have found it very challenging, but interesting. Fascinating that the tiniest touch makes so much of a difference. I think this is the fascination of portrait painting. I'll certainly try more as its really interesting how light and shade have so much affect.
