Prof. Alice Roberts portait

Continuing the scientists theme I seem to be building, this is a digital portrait painting of Professor Alice Roberts who is a well known science TV presenter, author, clinical anatomist and Professor of Public Engagement in Science at the University of Birmingham.

With this I was trying to both keep a really loose painterly look, while also having plenty of detail. It's something I see other artists achieving beautifully but I find very tricky to get right. I think this works ok, but I may have over-rendered the face - the skull and hands are better. A good learning experience anyway :) What scientist shall I do next...?
