Breathing Life into a Painting

"Portrait - In Progress IV"
Oil on Canvas, 6"sq., c. Catherine Vines
I can't get over how fascinating the process of painting a face can be. The marvel of trying to turn a flat, two-dimensional square into a living, breathing individual human being continually amazes me.  Especially when I start to see the first signs of life.
Today's goal is to concentrate on the eyes and eyebrows.
Today's posting veers toward the red side - now there's a mystery.
