At Last! Hair!

"Portrait - In Progress"
Oil on canvas, 6"sq., c. Catherine Vines
Well, sorta. But I have plans.
This grainy photo - for reasons I don't understand although I'm guessing low light - is my first pass on this portrait. 
Don't even ask me about the mouth.
I did learn - for about the 1000th time - I like to paint bigger.
I have neglected painting for my new book, "Portrait Painting Atelier" by Suzanne Brooker. I am especially inspired by the section on "Creating a Color Recipe Book" where you make charts doing color recipe exercises. It fits perfectly in my color studies.
