Face painting

December being a slower month at work, I decided to take another portrait paintinc class. This time from Jane DesRosier. I like her paintings, they remind me of Tonitza's girls portraits. So, I watched  the videos - that was easy. Then, I painted ... about seven faces I believe. One uglier that the other! Scary ugly. I had a hard time with the blue-green underpainting too. I could not figure out the winnning combination yet. In the end, I managed to salvage three faces.

 This one had a green underpainting.

Attempt a 3/4 portrait - with less than stellar results...

Conclusion: more work needed!
