Portrait of Jan - Oil on Canvas - 16 x 20

Portrait class, Instructor Vanessa Lemen. This portrait was started in class from life and then worked on at home from a photo. It has some problems that need to be fixed, but mostly I am pretty happy with it. It feels like a bit of a "breakthrough" painting in a way, I was able to recognize some initial problems and then attack them with a boldness that I haven't had before. I am not certain that I will finish this portrait as it feels like it has served it's purpose for me already. We will see. Although now that I look at it one the web - maybe I will fix it....
