In my third portrait of the day, I finally choked. The likeness wasn't coming together by the half hour and I quickly fell behind with corrections. I didn't even have a chance to get to the hair before the bell! If this was the real deal competition, I don't think I would have passed elimination with this result. Above is where I was at at the one hour point.
Ah well, I wasn't going to let a little failure from stopping me from making a decent painting today. This is the result of an extra twenty minutes that I won't have next Saturday. I will have some serious trouble if my model has long hair and soft features.
