Week Three: Norway

Week 3 was a challenge .. .painting an elderly face. The artist, Christian Krohg from Norway was the choice ....and here is my rendition of his portrait of Barbara Larrsen.
I had to step away from this painting, and looking at it now on the screen ... I see where I can push myself even further...add more depth to her face.

Week Two: Romania

Hello All! I'm still hanging in there with Sharon Tomlinson's Diary of Faces Class. Week 2 is Romanian artist Nicolae Grigorescu. Now for me, his still of painting is very loose ... and I am having a difficult time ... it's easy for me to add details...NOT so easy to have details appear with no definitive lines. Here's where I am so far with my interpretation of Painter's Wife... almost done...but it's a challenge for me.
