Oil on 20x16 canvas paper
My mom came to visit for a week and agreed to pose for me to practice painting a portrait from life. We had a great time, did a lot of talking (except when I was working on her mouth!), took breaks for tea and ended up with a pretty nice portrait at the end and she thinks it looks like her! A success!
This took about 4 days of about 2 hours of sitting each day. I then worked more on the background today once she was gone.
