These are really nice portraits Susan especially the one in color! i'll miss this challenge too. It's been so enjoyable, meeting other artists and admiring their work. :)
What a nice collection of pencil portraits! You have sensitively captured a variety of people. I have to say that my favorite one is the really loose #11 (I think it's number 11....) because of how quirky it is. But they're all really nice to look at.
Wonderful work! The one in color is my favorite, I think, but they're all so good.
The addition of color is wonderful. I love your sketches!
