Hi there, This is a portrait I started at my lesson last week and then finished on my own. My teacher Chuck Marshall pointed out an interesting thing I was doing with my brush. I would load my brush and then lay the paint on and then stroke it a second time. I never realized I was doing that, so great to find out. When you are laying down that final stroke you want it clean and I was pushing it into the paint underneath which muddies it up. I am enjoying my lessons with him and I think it has been very helpful. This is oil on a 8 X 10 canvas panel.
