What a humbling day... This painting was REALLY HARD. The good news was that everyone in the class struggled with it. Some people left even after 6 hours with no face. It was exhausting! But I figure that I came away with 4 paintings, and I like 3 of them very much, so that's ok! It really was a great workshop.
Again, mine is the one in the foreground. The flash really washed everything out when taken head-on. I think it's cartoony looking... but for my first color portrait ever, I guess it's OK!
