Redhead - Digital Painting

Redhead Digital Painting. Painted from scratch using Photoshop CC and Wacom Intuos5 tablet.
Time taken: Approx 4 days on-and-off.

Hartmut Nörenbergs photography is just great and I wanted to paint some of his portraits. I chose this one to do first, and to be my last for 2013
I decided to change the mood (rather than straight copy) and paint it quite a bit darker. Even though those that know me know what I think about painting hair, I think it turned out O.K. :)
