|"safina" first stages|
i won't bore you with the details as i painted this pretty much how i have described in numerous other previous posts. i will say that i am going to try to leave some of the less necessary details understated. we'll see how that goes. i must say that i post this with a bit of trepidation as i consider the subject's grandmother stephie butler to be really good at the understated portrait. i just hope that in the end the result will do some justice to safina's likeness. i will post the final result later today or tomorrow. thanks for following along.
