Grazie, Luca, ma ci sono cosė tante cose da imparare che penso non finiremo mai di cercare soluzioni sempre nuove e pių efficaci. Ma in fondo č proprio questa una delle ragioni che ci spinge a disegnare. Stai esponendo da qualche parte (siamo in estate, magari non č una brutta idea fare un salto in Sardegna ;-)) :D

Wow, the detail on her face is amazing. And she was a neurologist? Assuming my math is correct, she lived over a hundred years old? She sounds like an interesting woman. I can see why she'd make a great portrait.
