After 2 failed attempts (almost 3!) I am very happy to present to you my latest painting.

This portrait was a challenge! Not much room for error… a millimetre off on the upper lip or the brow line and the expression is completely different. On top of that, I decided to try something different: to work on paper mounted on wood panel. The surface is super interesting for portraiture, specially for me who does not like working on canvas. However, this surface requires the use of stiffer brushes and if you make a mistake, correcting it is not easy.

Now that the painting is safely in the hands of its new owners, I can now focus on my next projects, and one in particular that I hope to share with you soon!

To be continued…
