The most difficult part of this painting was trying to get my husband's handsome face just right. It is not perfect, but it might be the best I can do for now. I definitely need more practice and training.
I'm fairly happy with the skin tones now.
Now to work on his hair. I took out some of the strands on his forehead, meaning I had to touch up the skin tones. I also added more colour to his beard.
Oops! Once I posted this, I realized there was a little too much colour in Terry's beard and hair. I also wanted to touch up his skin tones a bit more. Should I really give this as a gift and would it be better shoved in a closet?
Okay. So after I started posting the 'final' photos, I scooted downstairs and did a little buffing with a dry stippler brush. I think it's a little better now. Hubby says it is good, so I am going to give it to my beautiful MIL and hope that she likes it too. Thanks for joining me on this journey of a painting. I hope you enjoyed it.
