Faces, faces.
I love faces.
This is an unfinished oil portrait I've been working on.  Needs more work, but I like the way it's coming out and I love playing with oils.
Of course, now that I am looking at it posted I see all the things that are wrong.
It's funny how you can work on something and look at it from every which way, far away, close up, upside down, or reflected in the mirror.  You look for what you need to work on, and just when you think you can't find anything else, you post it or hang it up and suddenly you think "how did I miss that?"
But just the fact that you are able to see something you previously missed means you are improving.
And that's what it's all about.
Wishing you all a good weekend,
Carol B.
