Approaching the final stretch on this one; everything is in the right place, but I need another 2 or 3 layers to add subtlety and soften the transitions.

I'll be demoing on this lady tomorrow and Sunday during the second weekend of #PDXOS. My studio is #58 on the tour pdxos.com.
There are tens of hours still to go, so come check out my progress.

I'm eager to play with all the colors on this one, except I can not get these eyes and eyelids to agree with each other. Will I ever get these eyes to be realistically similar? Check in with this painting and more than two dozen others (complete and in progress) at my studio, #58 on the #PDXOS tour, this weekend.

Skin is still on the mottled side and needs to move towards a smoother, more consistently rendered look. Making good progress though.
Come by my studio, #58 on the PDXOS tour, this weekend to talk about the joys of art, the horrors of Myanmar, and whether one can effect the other.

Occassionally I finish paintings . . . Except maybe the eyes need a little more of a glimmer.

Getting deeper into this one now. Rather rough and a bit awkward at the moment, but with such interesting shadows on this face it feels full of potential.

Assuming everything continues coming together in this piece it will be in the Dec show at Gallery @ the Jupiter Hotel.

I've declared this one done, but now I need to hide it from myself because there's one or two things still nagging at me. I'll pull it back out in a month and see if they still trouble me.

I'm pleased with how this one is coming together. It's at the stage where I start seeing how many less-naturalistic colors I can sneak in.

Baby stepping toward naturalistic colors. 40% done, maybe, hopefully.
33 hours into this 48 x 36 piece, a behemoth for me. Hoping to complete it in time for Dec show at Gallery @ the Jupiter Hotel.

I had considered this basically done last year, but now I've decided it's not up to snuff; the eyelashes in particular lack subtlety. Hopefully only a couple layers to re-finish it.

Progress, but not there yet. Maybe just another layer or two to soften some of the too harsh wrinkles and sharpen up the eyes and eyebrows.
