Portrait Drawing with Some Knit

I have a fresh portrait painting for you today. I tried adding some knitting to the drawing. What do you think?

I had another version where I circled the image with a knitted i-cord but I didn’t like how it turned out. It was too messy but I do want to keep experimenting with ways to open up my portraits beyond the rectangle. Maybe a Latvian braid will look better or a knitted lace border, hmmm!

However, I do like the knitted clothing.

FYI: I’m out of town today setting up for Vogue Knitting Live, NYC. I’ll be posting Instagram Stories while I’m out. If you want to follow along my username there is @dartily_faith I also have a link to my social media channels on my homepage.
