As can be seen so many areas to work and rework. Today's main goal is to correct the eyes. It has to do with shapes and values, so the eyes set in their sockets and appear rounded, along with making sure the eyes are level and shaped correctly. The nose is shaped about right as is the mouth, and will clarify the values and colors in those areas as well.
Since I've taken the pressure off of myself for perfection and to just enjoy the process, it doesn't bother me to make a wrong stroke or use a color that doesn't work. I know it can be scraped off and reapplied. Very liberating. Is there a possibility of the painting being overworked? Of course, but not at this stage. My main concern is muddy colors instead of the fresh color I want. I am learning a lot about myself and how timid I am with darks.
