Lady with Hat

Here is my project painting for the WcW online group. We were supposed to all paint from the same photo, of an unknown girl named Candace. Well, I decided this doesn't look like Candace does in her photo so I decided to title the painting "Lady with Hat". One of these days I will get the likeness down well, it is an evoluntionary process!

I liked doing that hat, though!

Great finish, Susan! I'm glad you got her past the ugly stage (which mine are at right now). I already commented at WcW so nothing more here except a "Good for you!" for sticking with it and making it work.

Thanks, Rhonda! I can always count on you for suggestions and/or encouragement. I MIGHT just work on this some more, but we will see. I tried doing this while the painters were working on the house and there were a few disruptive pauses, but that would only be an excuse! I do find portraiture to be so challenging but something in me makes me want to do better so....eventually!
