I’m please with the face. She’s almost in profile. The hair and neck could use some more work.

Today’s portrait sketch is that of a young girl. I haven’t attempted painting a child’s head before. Since I currently have no good reference pictures of children, I went to morguefile.com and found this photo http://www.morguefile.com/archive/display/140295. There is a couple issues with my painting, but I am somewhat happy with it. I went over my time by 10 minutes. This time I painted over a quick line sketch I made first. I allowed me to paint much quicker this time. I even got some of the ears and hair started 🙂

I kinda finished it. It’s ok. Lighted the skin and lips, cropped the painting. It was quite the challenge for me for some reason. More realistic portrait painting is out of my comfort zone so I need to practice more portraits in the future. Next time I will use a actual reference. Maybe that will help me somewhat.
