Girl in Gray - NFS

"Girl in Gray", 12 x 9 In, Oil on Museum Board
It is interesting to do an oil portrait sketch without worrying about the background. This one just didn't seem to need a background.  I remember once in a workshop the teacher telling me I should leave a background with just the tone of the canvas, but I couldn't stop myself from filling it in with paint.  It really was a mistake, but this type of mistake you can't really confirm until you make it.
