Fun day at life model group at USC Aiken. Two hours of work work work and fascinating conversations during the breaks. Erica is a great model. Most of the time I can capture her likeness without a problem...NOT today....Still not happy with her but her she is at least for tonite...NO more working on her. Maybe tomorrow I will paint her face out and start over again.
So what have I changed?? Her chin was a hair too long. I shortended it...her nose was wrong her lips were wrong...her eyes well they were a mess. I shaved millimeters off the width of her face. Maybe next time I will just paint her face...and nothing else?!! Options you know!?
I do like her body now...and the background.
Here's a detail of her face.
I am pretty happy with her hands...
Here's what she looked like when I brought her home...just tiny things wrong with her...but the tiny things make the difference dont they. I will look at her again tomorrow when I am not so tired!!
