100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Jill, 85/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Day 85

This is artist Jill Polsby. I should have included the whole photo Jill sent me. She was plein air painting in Utah when this photo was taken and there is a lovely scene in the background.

I told Jill she was wearing the hat from hell (from my perspective). If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you'll see all this texture in the fine weave of the hat. I tried different things to try to replicate that texture but failed miserably.

Whoopee! I'm a "selected" person. Thank you Carol for such a wonderful job on the "hat from hell". Can't believe you wanted to paint that hat!
