I wasn't at all sure that I was going to post this one. It started out ok, then it got to a point where I thought it was great, and even at only half done the lady was recognizable.. always a bonus. but then I just don't know what happened and by the end, although it is a nice face and looks perfectly ok... it no longer looks like the lady in question.
as always the outline
Eye and paper flowers done. here it really looked like her. I was so pleased at this point.
But by the end it is just not her, very disappointing. I know the eyes are too big, that is a definate problem, but I also know the mouth isn't right... I just don't know why.. I guess this is all part of learning as I go along. Working out what works and what doesn't, and being able to spot mistakes and know how to fix them.
Once I knew I had gone wrong, I didnt bother to finish the lower part at all,nor the background.
because this started out so well, I am very tempted to do this one again. I don't usually like repeating anything, but I need to learn how to change things that haven't worked.
