Day 4 Artwork

"Model Portrait" oil on canvas board, 11" x 14"

This is the last day's labor of love, an oil portrait. Who is it, you ask? No one in particular, just a model's photograph that displayed some good shadow and contrast. I have always had success with pastel portraits and have been ready to get going on oil portraits. It's interesting to think about all those blood veins/vessels underneath the skin, and thinking about how that effects the colors in the facial plane. I would welcome your feedback on this one. Thanks!
