Portrait Study #2

This painting was a challenge getting the jawline to look right with the subtle reflected light, its always hard for me to render a foreshortened jawline to look correct without making it seem like a huge jaw. I used the background color as a starting point for the mid-tone which I could always erase back to if I screwed up something.

Portrait Study #1

I haven't posted in a while, but I have many pieces to scan and upload. As always, its hard to balance the daily grind at work, family, and creating art.
