I just put the finishing touches on my portrait! I wasn't sure if I wanted to work on it today because I always fear over-working a painting. I'm so glad that I did work on it because now it is completely done. It's always tough to decide when something is finished but I always try and finish when my gut tells me it's done. All that's left is that I have to sign it.
This is the first painting that I've completed for 2017 and I'm very proud of it. It captures the spirit and likeness of my girlfriend exactly as I wanted. I've been doing a lot of drawing commissions recently also via Instagram, but I want to start a new painting soon. I'm thinking about doing a profile portrait of my best friend, Russell.
