A little background: This picture is an actual commission of friend at work and her new husband. I did it on 11 inches by 14 inches (A3 size) Bristol Smooth, acid-free paper. My friend gave me her color photograph taken by a loved one. I scanned it and turned it into a black and white picture in a photo editing program. That made it easier to see the tones and enlarge the picture since it is on the computer. This tutorial is about doing a portrait, which I hope will enlighten you or refresh your skills.
