Portrait of Lara

Portrait of Lara - student project

Thank you for a valuable class, Waltteri! This is an attempt of a portrait of a woman named Lara, using the Zorn palette. I find it quite difficult to create the right color hues and values. But I'm slowly learning. I often tend to either rush my paintings, or overwork them; both of which are bad for the end result. I'm trying to learn how to paint with care, at the same time as I'm embracing the spontaneity of creating art. It's hard. Any feedback is appreciated!Portrait of Lara - image 1 - student project
