Face #8 “Lady in a hat” painting.

For today I decided simply paint with acrylics on gessoed paper (Art journal page). I do not like portraits with teeth showing in smile: it’s easy to draw unpleasant face with a grin. That is why I did it on purpose: made myself to overcome my fear to paint that open smile. I also plan to practice painting/drawing different facial expressions.face 8

    I like her. She almost looks like you, Oksana. The facial features & laugh lines are just like yours. i really like the way you shaded her hair, too. Very nice work!
