Day 161: Portraiture and painting.

In my continued efforts to do things I cannot currently do very well… I decided to paint a portrait! – Mostly I just sketched a girl, and then refined the sketch.. And then decided to paint it.
Turns out painting works pretty well if you just iteratively work on it, at first the hair looked good, then the skin was okay, then the eyes.. And with time the thing needed some more context, so I scribbled in background and a body for the lass.
Still far from “finished”. But I find myself hitting the walls of my creativity. I need to study more of what I am actually trying to bring out in these paintings, so I know what to do.

Very difficult to work towards a goal without knowing quite what the goal is.
