There comes a point, where you can work a piece to death and lose all the freshness and likeness that occurred. I almost did that. I have come to the conclusion that including more than one person in a portrait is very difficult. This was my challenge and I think for the most part it came out OK. The figure furthest to the left got her eyes redone, and now I notice they are a little askew. That is what I often observe on other artist's portraits, and it bugs me really bad...but I am done with this one for now. This was purely practice, it's in a mat, on the "art rail" in the studio, for me to continue to self-critique. It was my challenge for the week!
