Portrait practice

I have no formal art training and very little hands-on practice.  I've basically been working on it for about a year, off and on (mostly off).  I tend to get frustrated easily and give up if I can't grasp something immediately.  This is a habit I'm trying to break.  So!

I chose this stock photo because I loved the expression on her face.  Which turned out to be quite tricky.

Started with a sketch.

I proceeded with it after watching the first video (without any of the detail ones).

Wasn't thrilled, so I went back and watched each of the videos, then tried again.

Big improvement, I think, though I think I can do better with more practice (and possibly also a few more pencils).
