Day 2 of 29 Faces

I worked on this painting last night. I have more work to do or I might just do it over [?] I learned alot by making this painting. I think I am going to get ALOT out of this challenge. I really don't do faces as much as I would like. For the longest time I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it and I fixed the neck. It seems to work better. The iphone is such a great tool. I kept taking photos and it helped having a smaller, overall view of the piece.  I am basing this on a painting I have hanging in my office. Right over my computer screen. I have been looking at this girl for about years and wanting to do my own version. Years ago I did an outside art show and the guy in the booth next to me had all these amazing portraits of girls. You can see by the photo below that the painting isn't so big, its about 4" wide, max. And the nose! what a pain, LOL! Oh boy its going to be a fun month, ahhaha!
her neck didn't look right...

Just keep painting and learning, after all, it's the journey … and the potential value we stand to gain from it. :) Lovely faces!
