Never Ending Story
Still fighting the fight with Steve's portrait. I have been working on this painting continuously trying to finish it. There are days when it seems like I'm getting to the point where I want it but when I come back the next day more changes need to be made. I'm having small problems with the flesh tones in the face, it's starting to look like a plastic doll, a very irritating situations since this is not the first time I paint Steve's portrait. I'm working with the first portrait next to the new one to help me see what I did right. But even so this large portrait is not being cooperative. Slowly but surely I will get it right. I just painted out the left arm because it was in an awquard position. That's an easy one though, is the face that's got me pulling my hair!
