I know, pushing my luck with this pose. I had a date with Fairlie Art Club and what to paint? Why, the waitress of course!
One of the members is also a member of New Cunninghame Club and saw a version of this there. Fortunately a three quarter view and not the same one. I was able to chat more this time since I am so familiar with the face now I could relax into the painting. I need a new image for the next one.
