5 1/2" x 5 3/4", oils


This is the latest of my portrait commissions.  I start with a brush that's 1/4" wide and finish with a brush that is literally a millimeter wide. If I have painted a shadow in the wrong place, even if it's off by only a millimeter, the face is all wrong and doesn't match the subject. No kidding.

This is my work area.
