Woman with Baby
Of all the portraits I did last week, this one I struggled with the most. It made me realize that having a clear idea of the contrasts in the painting when I start is key. When the contrasts, whether value or color or shape are not definite, then there is the tendency to keep re-doing it and sometimes it is impossible to get it right.
