Here is yet another version of my Caroline painting. I made the background green, and am still deciding if I like it. It might be too much color??
I am reposting this image of Caroline. After viewing the image large, I decided that I wasn't happy with the lips, so I repainted them. Many times I can see things in a large photograph that I don't see in the actual painting. I don't know why this works for me, but it does, and always has. I hope this looks better. (Excuse me for using my blog as a work tool....) Also I am not happy with the color in the photograph...the painting seems much warmer to me in person, but when I try to darken the photograph the background becomes too dark.
