Backtracking to Week 4, the Reveal

Now that the recipient has received her gift, I can reveal the final painting.

Aside from the fact that I left my wet palette opened from Thursday morning, through Friday night, thankfully after I had pretty much finished the face so the paint that did try it didn't matter so much, this went pretty well.

Oh my gosh, I used to take so many in process photos...

Ugly first layers
I am also deeply thankful for the Facebook group "52 Portraits in 52 Weeks" as they came to my aid as I struggled to work on the shirt. The reference photo had a striped shirt that seemed really complicated.

 The final piece is 12" x 16" on cold press watercolor paper in acrylic.

And is my dad, who passed away last year.
