8x8, oil on canvas.

This is my 4th portrait.  My third one is going back on the easel today. This one, like the others, was cut from a photo with a lot of other information in it.  By the time it was cropped and enlarged it became somewhat fuzzy so I photoshopped it with the palette knife filter which helped to turn the subtle into definite plane changes.  With all that it was still challenging for me!

I am having so much fun that I'm going to start carrying my camera around so I can start collecting candid shots for painting!
