Tall and Skinny finis

Added dimension to work by adjusting contrast especially in background; also worked on small details.  I'm calling this one finished.

Tall and skinny...

Trying a number of new things with oils today.  Draw with the brush; use a limited palette - red, yellow, blue and white...landscapes are not something I've tried before.  I thought it would be easier than portraits, but not so!  This is a work in progress - I've just got to step back for a while....

in the doorway...

getting closer...tomorrow tackle the hair, background, etc. Working with oils wet on wet is certainly a challenge!

Eye Did It...

Working on the eyes - stressful to say the least!  Mulling over the eyebrows and, of course, she needs eyelashes!
