Thanks Chris,
I’ve been working on a painting that is driving me nuts and I think the problem stems from the original photo being distorted (thinking of your comments on my previous sketches from screen grabs off the TV). I wondered if you’d be willing to take a look at the photo and where I am now with the painting and give me your thoughts? If you’re willing to take a look, what’s the easiest way? Email or a private page on my website I can share with you?

Although I believe in finishing things, I feel the urge to cut my losses and move on. I’ve drawn and redrawn on paper the portrait numerous times, thought I had it sketched out properly, but once I painted it (and repainted and repainted) I’m getting the feeling that the problem is the distortion in the original photo (which I was only attracted to by the color in the background which reflected on her face).
Thanks!
Jana
