Practicing portrait painting. I've been aiming at being a little quicker. This took about 5 hours, a big departure from some of my works in the past. There is a lot that could be touched up. The hair strokes for sure, more detail in her face, etc., but like I said, it's for practice. It still has the basic essence of the model...which is calestin.deviantart.com/art/sh… . Doesn't she make the perfect portrait model? She has the most beautiful smile and eyes.
