Progress in Oil

Trying to paint on a linen board. It soaks up the paint way more than I'm used to. Not sure I like that. If anyone's wondering, that's a shadow coming across her face. Looking pretty harsh at the moment...none too subtle. The paint is not pliable at all on this surface. I keep repeating my motto....this is all about learning.
Here's the progress on the face and background.. Got the ribbon in too.

I'm hoping this is a birthday present for me.

it is wonderful to see the stages of the young girl! I do not know how to paint like that (well barely know how to paint at all, so this fabulous to see!).

The top one has a wonderful expression. I look forward to it as you continue on.

Bevany...let's see when I'm might not want it.

Thanks Tammy. I like your direct approach to painting. What do you mean you don't know?

I hope I can preserve the expression.
