A Photo Can Show a Painting's Weaknesses

Portrait - In Progress V
Oil on Canvas, 6" sq., c. Catherine Vines

I thought I was done until I saw the photos. Even bad photos like this (low light and reflections) can show where a painting still needs work.
In this case, her left jaw line is still wrong. And the dark accents in the top of her hair stand out like a sore thumb. Her lips don't have enough dimension. Stop!
One thing at a time.
Until tomorrow.
