Finished portrait

The painting is at the framers. I finished the locket and skimmed over here and there to take it to the end on Friday. Can do no more now other than hope for a good response from the sitter. Every picture painted, generously teaches a small lesson or two. I spent a long and unnecessary time on the underpainting here. The painting could have been done in anything up to half the time if I pushed on at the beginning. On the other hand I have rushed before and that can create problems of it’s own.

( The colour on the pic below should not be so dramatically different from the one under it – differentconditions when photographing the painting. I’ll double check the true colouring and publish a better photo)
