My First (and probably my Last) Portrait!

Well, I finally made it through two grueling days of Workshop! I can't believe that I actually painted a portrait! Or, make that, TRIED TO PAINT A PORTRAIT! First came the drawing (which I don't do well), and then all the shadow painting (which I kinda liked), and even with Janet's help, I still think any 3rd grader could do better. This is not an area that I am comfortable with. But, I am proud of myself for at least trying. And, I have another workshop scheduled for next month! Landscapes - maybe I can do better there.

Here is one of Janet's demos. She calls it "Big Eye, Nose and Mouth". If only.............
