|Playing with the blues|
The whole project makes me nervous. I really think I have a lot of nerve trying to paint this portrait as my second serious attempt. Sure, I've done a few small heads over the last year-- for fun--to see if I like portraiture--but the size of this canvas (18 x 24) and the three quarter clothed figure makes this project a tad more serious and me very presumptuous for a young portrait painter just starting out. (It's great to be young at something).
