100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Jen, 77/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Day 77

This is Jen.  She is the wife of David, 70/100.  As easy as it was to paint David, Jen was difficult.  I think the extreme angle on the shaded side of the face contributed to the difficulty - there's just not a lot of room to get the details in.  For purchase information, please see my website.

My portrait project has spawned a similar, but fundamentally different effort by fabulous daily painter Suzanne Berry.  Check out her blog to find out about her "floating faces."

You've done this marvelously well, Carol. I like that angle, in fact.

Her red hair is simply AMAZING! Full of light, detail, and rich color! That's how I want mine to look!
