In Training: Aimee

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.
