I have worked quite a bit on this image in oil the past two days, but am having a tough time with it, so I decided to do this sketch for a break! The difficult part of the oil painting is actually the lighting. It is inside a convenience store and the light has a green tint to it. I am standing outside, so am also getting the reflections in the window. I like the effect alot, but will just have to keep working on it to see if I can get the painting to a point where I want to share it.

Vicki, you are definitely off to a great start with this study...she is exuding character...what ever the light may really be, or end up being in your painting.

You are on a roll my dear! I still can't stop looking at "Painting With the Ribbon".That one is a winner for sure! I am guessing your struggles with this one were partly due to the fact you weren't painting your family members!
