Art School: Veronica.

I'm about half-way through my portrait painting class at Watts.  This painting was done in around two and a half hours with help from my very talented instructor, Ben Young.  I had taken a four month break between portrait painting classes which was unfortunate since I felt like I had made great progress in the previous term.  I feel like I'm starting to get my feet underneath me again.

Veronica (Oil on canvas board.  9x12"). I apologize for the glare -- the painting is still wet.

Here's a close-up.  I was pleased with how I painted the pupil and iris.  Three strokes and I'm done.
