I think I am done. There are things I see that might just have to be corrected, but not today. I loved doing this. I felt like an ant crawling a long. It is amazing what color there is in flesh. I don't believe this photo can show the little marks of color that I found myself making toward the end. It also doesn't show the do and redo which builds up under the surface. I am pleased that I did get a likeness for the first time in a long while. I did the structure work first and built on that frame. I revisited the steps I learned with Cynthi Grilli. I am excited and can't wait to start another one.
I want to continue painting on this 12x12 box format and paint my family and friends and hang them side by side on a wall in my house. People I love and make the difference in my life. I am always amazed and grateful everyday for all who touch me with their encouragement, wisdom, creativity and kindness. Love to all : )
Anyone interested, Cynthia Grilli will be offering another, 3 Wednesdays, Portrait Workshop starting Febuary 17, 24, and March 3, 11:00 to 2:00. Just click on her name for more info at her website.
