Portrait Study #2 - Colour Of A Poet

Second instalment for my study, a portrait of Henry Charles Bukowski - A German/American poet. I kept it to the same style as my previous portrait of Ezra Pound, working on my consistency as appose to trying out new methods but I'm really happy with it. It's always a bit of a challenge working from a black and white photograph, but the values came out pretty good. I do see faults, but it's all part of the study process really. Practise makes perfect.
