The quality of this picture may elude you, but I assure you that this image has more technical ability in it than almost any others I've done. It's mostly in her right shoulder.
I like her apricot skin--it makes her like like a large dull plastic mannequin.
Current painting. This represents 9 hours of work. I get 3 more. I'm going to need it, but things are improving.
Another still life. I learned in this one to simplify my subject. Just because it's in your field of vision doesn't mean you have to paint it. Composition is very important.
