Double Portrait WIP 3
I've finished painting the daughter now apart from a couple of small touch ups. I'm afraid I can't get her hair in my photo looking like it does in the real painting. I think the camera picks up on all the colours that I have used because her hair is made up of many layers of fine brushstrokes and then washed with clear water to soften it. I decided to finish the daughter before doing any more work on Mom because this now gives me some value references to help me get her skin tones correct.. at least that's my theory.
