I started this portrait on Monday and got back to it yesterday - Thursday. Of the portraits I've been working on this one feels like it is presentable at an early stage, probably because the mouth is hidden. I can see a few things I want to adjust and that would be the eye on the right of the painting, it is not as squinty as the one on the left so needs to be closed a bit more. The edges along the hair had been quite fun to try and the subtle modelling a challenge. Here I was trying to use warm/cool tints to model these forms.
If I don't muck this up I probably can finish this in two more sessions.
