Grrr! She's Not Going So Well
Well, after 18 paintings that I am absolutely thrilled with and proud of, this one just isn't working for me. I'm really happy with the background, but I'm not so hot on the girl. I have plenty of shading to do on her face yet and have to finish her hair, but something just isn't quite right. I think I'm unhappy because I put her eyes up slightly higher than I usually do. I could just paint more hair at the top, but the black would be really hard to cover unless I want her to have super long bangs. I think I'll just set it aside for a while and come back to it with fresh eyes at some stage.
