    today I made a start with a portrait that I have failed to get right over the last 4 or so years I kept the ref as a reminder to give it one more go when I feel my vision has improved enough
    I didnt do much but it is a start and I hate staring at a blank canvas on the easel

    this one can go both ways but I will try to talk you trough it :)
    you will notice I have masked a part off that needs to stay real white and will be addressed at the end when I have finished the lady

    remember I have failed twice to get this portrait right so this time I am breaking it up in sections
    the total size is about 40 x 60 cm but the face is still not real big
    just to show you what I want to paint I have left the ref photo(s) in this pic

    I found out that I was missing a few trace lines in my sketch and I am using a paper that isnt the best for airbrushing but I will work with it
    The basics for the face are in but far from finished and it is time to start on the second section

    thanks Si I think I will be able to pull this one off this time but there is a problem with the paper I am using : it does not allow as much manipulation of the paint as I am used to so it all comes down to airbrush and paint controle

    I'm sure you will do alright with this one Ron, a man with your skills. Keep chipping away.

    I took this portrait as far as I wanted to go adding a black background was not a option for me as this was only to see if I could get it "right" this time around and I think I did
