This is another farther version of the dame thing i have been working on if you have seen the others. I put in some purple in the skin tones which darkened them quite a bit. I put in high lights in the eyes and hair. The nose and mouth are re-worked some, as well as the shadows in the face. The most obvious change will be the bamboo I put in for contrast. Tell me what you think of it. This is my first attempt to draw bamboo and I wonder if the color of it should be a little darker or something, or maybe you think it is too distracting?

I grew up on the prairie cap rock of the Texas panhandle , and started to read on my own from the Encyclopedia Britannica before I started school. My parents had little education but probably never said no to any book salesman or book club. In the sixth grade I was reading at the grade level of 13.5 at three times the average adult speed with comprehension in the top percentile. When our daughter was four I noticed that on her own she was drawing a wicker chair. I had done some drawing as a teenager but there wasn't much I could show her, so I started doing research through the inter-library loan system and borrowed books from private and public libraries across the U.S. With this I added a little of my own ideas such as the little amount of spherical trigonometry I picked up to get a handle on perspective. So here I am, and at 51 I still have never physically been in an art class or art museum.
