Thank you Dayle! I'm glad you like it. I must say working from something more personal I don't want to give up until I get something fairly close. Unfortunately I don't think I'd be very good with lessons as I'm still fumbling around. Smile

Callie, I'm looking forward to seeing your painting! Smile

I used Ultramarine, Perm. Rose and Cad. Yellow Lt. for this. I tried doing it with no drawing or under-painting, just scrubbed and mixed right on the board (8 x 10 in,).
So not a very good likeness, but I was more concerned with mixing colors
This took about 2 hours (tried not to fuss with it):

Janet,

Your portrait looks wonderful. I haven't been following your progress with traveling these past several weeks, but looking at the progression now was great. Her eyes and nose or so much more expressive. You really did a great job.

Judy

Thank you Judy! Smile

Callie, you're portrait is fantastic! Very expressive and I love the colors you were able to get with such a limited palette. Smile

Thanks everyone. It was fun to do. Usually with a portrait I'm more concerned with getting the likeness down rather than worrying about color mixing. This was way more fun - just playing with color rather than concentrating on an accurate portrait.
The gals I paint with at the coffeeshop were signed up for a plein-air workshop and the instructor had given them some homework to do before it started - mixing colors from the primaries + white, since those would be the only colors used during the workshop. So we were all struggling with it at the same time
I hope I can take the workshop in the fall, it was way too hot and humid for me to enjoy it this time of year.
I can't wait to see how their paintings turned out.
