AG 4"x4" oil portrait sold

Painting a beautiful face is a lot of fun, but it adds its own pressures.  I have found that using a really good reference (either photo reference or painting in person) helps me relax and feel more confident.  Poor reference photos can sometimes encourage me to keep it loose and not sweat the details, but more than likely, I find myself fiddling with it.  Poor photos of people or animals that I do not know, seem to work better than for more familiar faces.
