Second Portrait – Female Medium Close Up

This portrait study took a great amount of focus. It was difficult at first (trying to understand the angles and structure of the body, before manipulating the surface to look like the subject’s skin), but I learned a lot through every brush stroke. It exercised my ability to paint what was in front of me, rather than what my eye thought it saw.

    1. Yea, this one was challenging because I was still getting use to portraits; however, I learned a lot on the go with her. The model was an awesome person as well.
