Final Project.. so far…

For my Painting I final, I’m painting a mega, monster, humongous portrait (note to self…I should consider measuring the actual dimensions of my canvas)!!!
My friend, Elvira, was nice enough to volunteer for a quickie photo shoot. I asked her to give me weird faces, interesting gestures, whatever. This photo was one of our favorites:

I love this fantastic curving position and the shadows are beautiful. It was definitely the winning shot. 
I pasted the picture in my sketchbook, did a few sketches, made a few notes:

Before Turkey Day, I outlined and began blocking in color for the painting:

And today, I began to make a few corrections, and add more detail:

I’m having loads of fun with this painting already and I hope the outcome of all the work I put into it will be fantastic. I hope all the paint I’ve paid a bunch of money for will not be wasted!
