Posted by PicasaI am showing the stages this painting went through during each 20       minute sitting. You can see the searching and the struggle, and I hope the satisfaction when I finished with a portrait that captures this models features as well as her personality.


  1. Boy I just love this. Great job. Thanks for posting the process. So very helpful!

  2. Thank you Nancy, I had hoped by posting that it might be useful.

  3. Nice portrait and character study! Really good to see your progression—I'm struggling with a portrait from a photo, on my third attempt. Seeing these, it would be good for me to do a series of looser, smaller studies to explore, observe and be less tied to an end result. Thanks!
