This portrait is working out OK. I’m certainly absorbed. It doesn’t look like the model much anymore. But there are areas I really like. I don’t remember the last time I painted a face, in school in the 70s? She’s a bit splotchy but not too bad. I won’t be so nervous about a portrait the next time.
