I started working on the background today.

I made a little more progress on Hannah before calling it a day. I can see that I need to tweak her eyes some, I'll do that next and then start on the background.

I'm using a sanded surface paper for this portrait, it's literally like a piece of sandpaper. For this step I've used a cream colored pencil to blend the under painting and lock it into the sanded surface. As you can see I've lost many of my darks by doing this and will have to re-establish them in the next step.
