A four week portrait pose I've been working on under the expert guidance of @leemachelak .
This was a real roller-coaster from week to week. There were moments when everything seemed to flow so naturally , and moments when the whole thing seemed to fall apart. It's such a challenging process, and it's a big part of what excites me about oil painting. As always I can find a million 'woulda coulda shouldas' but overall I'm pretty happy with it. Now on to the next one!
