This is my third portrait and rather than get easier it was by far the hardest yet. It didn’t help that the two photos that I was using for reference didn’t capture the essence of the subject (a ridiculous way of saying that they really didn’t look like her!). I’m really not trying to make excuses as I’m happy with the progress – just not there yet. It’s incredibly how easy some artists can make this look.[singlepic id=803 w=400 h=400 float=] source: Jüjü Trinckü
walking on thin ice
The kids are back to school today (thanks be to God and all that’s holy!) The big freeze is still going on but it has stopped snowing so it’s just the ice and the -17 to -4 temperatures to deal with – don’t I sound like an old hand! I think we’re doing pretty good though as most of the country seems to be functioning even if on half speed. Meanwhile I need to get the finger out and make up for last week’s go slow while I had three kids under my feet!
