A little further….

sandy further on 11 jun

The portrait inches further on but seems a long way from finishing. I covered the bulk of the background to see how the picture looks as a piece. I am trying to brush the paint on almost haphazardly to achieve a spontaneity. It takes as much concentration , if not more, it seems, to keep in control of tone and placement in this way. I will have to be alert later on to know when enough marks are made to say what needs said here.
