                                    Its been a wile, you may want to scroll down a bit to see my first two blogs about Trisha.     After getting it close enough I started to paint. This is more my style than a pure "classical style".  at this point I started with colour in the sort of correct places, thick on the painting because...
            where I differ a bit is I mix on the painting itself and end up thin or "scumbled". At this point you can see uneven drying in the black, and still more refining to do, note: at the end of this day the dark marks around the lips, chin, above the ear ,etc. This is where I saw I drifted and "pushed"some corrections.
              Not the best photo but I think its done, though I have yet to varnish it. It will "pop" then. It is a "study" so im not too concerned about much more than how it feels. although I am pleased about the hair colour. the ear ring and necklaces were done using "french curves" , up close there bits of light and dark only because I was painting Trisha not her jewellery....

  1. It was good to see your Trisha portrait up on the blog, it gives interest to the work
    and how you achieved it. It's an elegant classical painting and I love the jewelry
    done so well.
