Putting in the lights and darks in Burnt Umber & White. I'm not concerned about the background at this moment, because when I was painting it, I really didn't know what the background was going to look like. In the only reference photo I had, she was sitting in front of a white background.

Very very beginning stages of an oil portrait. This one was rare. All I had was a pic from her grandfather's phone. Anyone who knows about phone pics, the quality may look good on your phone, but they rarely have the same detail as a DSLR. So in the end, I ended up guessing some of the details on her face.

I decided to head to the Clocktower Train Station in Richmond and see what I could do in 30 minutes. Just as I was finishing up, this nice lady asked me if my painting was for sale. Though a bit nippy, it was a gorgeous day and I'm glad I seized the opportunity to head downtown.
