I’m still not quite sure if my eyes are right yet. Might have to re-do. Portrait-painting is still a “new frontier” for me. But you know me: I love a good struggle.
I realized my hand had been blocked in too high. I had to white-out and re-draw, positioning it lower. I wanted my eyes to be looking at the tip of my brush. It’s kind of weird, looking into a mirror, trying to draw my hand. I’m right-handed and I wanted the painting to show I was right-handed, but for drawing purposes, I had to hold a brush with my left hand to look into the mirror. Kind of strange. No wonder I’ve been having very strange dreams at night….
