Sinead – 4

Here is the latest version of my portrait of Sinead.


This is 380 x 280 mm on Arches Hot Pressed, which is a nice smooth surface on which to work.

I really want to get this right – with each version I reflect and review my process and the outcome, I read around a different approach, I work out a different way of working and then I give it a go again.  Good learning process.

Here is the sketch:

I actually like this better than the finished painting.  Fresh, un-worked is good.
