Thanks for the comments and suggestion Jean. Much appreciated. I have used Zest-It or Isopropyl Alcohol solvent for blending. I will give rubber cement thinners a go. it is marketed as Shellite here. I usually just layer until I get a smooth finish, trouble with portraits is that sometimes the colour gets too intense
Thank you so much, Jean Every time I do anything under 9X12 I think I wish I had done it larger. I love putting details in my drawings and make it so hard for myself sometimes :-)I just saw some of your western work. WONDERFUL. I did a series using some of the same photos for reference. Yours are superb
