"Beautiful Girl" (Do-over In Progress) I'm no Carol Nelson, that's for sure. I decided I had to try again on this portrait, which is still in progress. Hope this is okay to post -- and if anyone else has redo's on any artwork you've done here so far, I for one am interested to see. I know I'm surely not the only one who has moleskin mailer's remorse sometimes? My goal was to work on making the colors more interesting as well as shooting for a better likeness. Trying to make her as gorgeous as she really is is quite a feat! Sometimes we have the opposite situation as portrait painters so that's a credit to the model. And if you already commented on the other version you're off the hook for doing so here, just wanted to share the attempt at redemption. Any further progress I'll save for my own blog. 14 x 11 oil on Ampersand board.
