Making Faces

I've been doing an internet course at Doll Street Dreamers - Windows with Angela Jarecki. The course is to produce an embroidered 'mini-quilt' with a face showing through a 'window' in the centre. The first part concentrates on drawing the face, and I signed on in the hope that working through it would improve my portrait work. I'm currently working on the first week. The first step was to follow Angela's instructions to draw a graphite sketch of a photograph of a model, that was supplied as part of the course, so I haven't reproduced it here. The next step was to draw a face of your choice on fabric in colour, again following Angela's instructions. I decided to try mine out on paper first, here's the result:
