Hello everyone. I thought it was time to update you on the portrait I have been working on. It is very close to being finished, perhaps another two lessons and it will be complete. I have work to do on the lady's ear and hair, some tidying up of the windows and some other small details.
Yesterday's lesson had me working on the dress and I am very happy with how it has turned out. In an earlier post, I expressed my distress at my teaching taking over my painting. What I now do is have a small flat canvas nearby which she can use to show me techniques if she needs too. I haven't actually said anything to her but I think having the canvas there has given her the message.
So it's time to start thinking about what to paint next. Maybe another portrait so I can practise my newly acquired skills.
Have a wonderful day.
