I was not happy with my latest finished oil portrait except for the elbow. The face just didn’t have the same light and as a portrait it was bad, bad ,bad. I sometimes part the painting in four parts and check if there is something interesting for the eye in each part. It failed that test as well.
In my world adding orange will make most thing better. So I did just that and repainted the face as well and made her ear smaller. Here is how the painting looked before *link to old post*
