This was a difficult one.  Since I was painting my daughter, I didn’t feel as free to experiment.  I took a very conservative approach to the painting and it shows.  Also, the colors I mixed for the skin tones were a bit drab and my numerous touch ups made the paint a bit muddy by the end.  I also focused on the details too early in the process.  Overall, I learned many lessons from this portrait that I will be carrying forward.
