First layers are down and I have to say I loved every minute of painting this.
I know I have still got quite a way to go and it's not as expressive as I would like it to be and I have many more layers to go but I loved the process. It wasn't always comfortable and it was super challenging. A reminder to me how much practice I need with reference work.
This is my first attempt of using my expressive self portrait references. I know I am still way off but I learnt so much and I still have so much to learn but I'm excited.
Funny enough, I'm not really seeing myself here but I'm seeing my daughter.
And I just love that.
