Second Try

This my second attempt at doing a face. I will never again try and paint on sketch paper.  It wrinkled and the water caused a ripple effect. I need some pointers on painting faces. I am happy with the background of the piece that’s the best part. Actually, the painting looks better in person. I scanned it first and the scan looked horrible;  then I took a photo with my camera.

    Why title this Dismal Try? I think it’s gorgeous!
    And I love the colors.

    Becky, thank you for your kind comments. I had titled it that when I scanned it and it scanned with white blotches that do not show up with the camera photo. It doesn’t look as dismal now…again, thanks!
