Following on from the previous post this is the finished portrait.
I didn't want to spend too long on this painting so kept the composition very simple.
Without having to consider other elements such as limbs, torso, background, foreground, what she's doing and so on, really frees up getting stuck into the process of painting. To the point it felt like a leisurely painting exercise.
In the end it took about 5 short sessions, spread over two weeks, to finish. This way I could fit it in between doing other things.
