Practicing Portraits in Oil

This is a work in progress from today - it's a character that my daughter acted recently
in the play "Moonlight and Magnolias".
I have a long way to go - I so wrestle with skin tones and
there is not much contrast with the straight on pose for the camera -
but that is why I tackled it.  Those photos are NOT good for portraits, but I love the challenge.
If it works out, I will be pleased.  Likeness is getting there - still quite a bit to do on that.
Tomorrow is another day!

Funny how MUCH needed to change, see Sunday post above.
