I love to paint. I love to read daily painting blogs - but never contribute... because I simply don't have the time to paint daily!

So - I decided: when I get A Chance to Paint, I will share and hopefully improve following comments and advice from others!

Portrait - Katie B

For the first time I created a grisaille before even thinking of colour and what a difference it made when painting! 

I'm pretty pleased with this one. However, I'm never sure about the hair. The mid tone is ok I think (burnt sienna and sap green) but the highlights aren't great. Maybe the brush I'm using. I never feel happy with hair!

The background is always a tricky one too. Blue seems ok here - recedes I think. Could that be better too? Probably.
