A Bit Rusty in the Figure Painting Department...

I've worked on the study over this extended weekend, and it's been a bit of a challenge.  Painting the figure has always been a challenge for me simply because I haven't done a lot of it.  What I have done has been more along the lines of illustration and hard-edge drawing.  But, I did manage to make progress and actually get some results that kind of work.

I painted out the face MANY times before I finally achieved the
"soft" look that I was going for - less is more...

This is just a study, and I may do another one just of the face to get a better grasp of it.  In the end, it will be a larger painting (as I think I mentioned before).
