The painting is nearly done. I need to work on the clothing a bit, and maybe darken the background if it is possible. Also, the paint is quite thickly applied in the highlights on the face and so I need to balance that in the shadows and maybe mix an orange tone to match what's there and apply it thickly.
After putting in a full day on it, tired, my eyes sore, I am in a bit of a slump and think the painting does not work. That could be exhaustion speaking.
It's a quick photo, taken indoors.
