This is a semi-abstract multi media portrait of the Chinese actress Ruby Lin. I plan to add a lot more pattern to it overall, but before I go on I thought I would get some opinions on it.  If a few of the details need to be changed I would rather do it at this stage than later when I have put a lot more time into it. If you are wondering about the size the hard copy is a regular sheet of 24 lb copy paper. I put the general pattern on it with watercolor and after a layer of workable fixative I drew on top of that. I scanned it into the computer and made small adjustments with Corel Paint Shop Pro 12. I plan to work some more on it with colored pencil and watercolor. Any coments would be appreciated.

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.
