*UPDATED* I worked on the painting a little more. Here is what I came up with.
Wow, do I love this girl. When I paint her face I get the opportunity to explore her incredible beauty. I’m in love.
I did this painting in one sitting (alla prima) and it was fantastic! Below I have some my progress, just so you can see how I build and layer these paintings. I start off with value and slowly add color. As you can see me initial painting had some major problems with the drawing. This always adds so much work at the end, so if you can avoid it, start off with a solid drawing. The painting took about 3 hours.
