This was my first opportunity to paint Jenny. She wore a wonderful, richly-colored velvet top. Her face has a lot of interesting planes and contours, which looked better before I softened them with a layer of overpainting. The eyes aren't quite right either. Still, it was fun. This painting is in acrylics on paper, about 18" x 24".

  1. This painting feel very elegent to me. Not sure what I mean by that but I feel that you have moved the work up a notch somehow. You have gotten a very good likeness but there is another element that I like as well. I will think about this somemore and look and some of you next peieces and try to put my finger on it.
