Head Detail

Remember when I said I was finished????  Well, after studying the face, I just had to add a few more strokes. I enhanced the cheek color and defined the eyes.   Eyes are so important in a portrait. .  Highlights on the eye have to be just so....not too large, yet enough to bring the subject to life.   Adding that final "spark" is my favorite part of portrait painting.
