I hate practicing and usually jump right into whatever I’m doing, but in this case I thought a practice piece might be prudent. These are process pictures for the Louvin Brothers portrait and they’re looking pretty good so far, but the real test will be stitching them. The stitching will either take it over the top or ruin it.
