Revised the size of the head and a few other shapes and lines; started rubbing in a thin layer of local color in hopes that it will be dry and ready to use as a demo on Saturday during the Studio Crawl. Overall, shapes still feel a bit clunky, and I'm going to have to get off the fence and decide about whether to approach as old school portrait or in a more modern fashion, with flat shapes and paint surface qualities. It will be a learning experience either way, I just don't want to end up straddling the two ideas and achieving neither (a familiar story). Or, maybe I'll stop worrying about it and just make it up as I go.
