"Carolyn with great hair" oil 10x16

Such wonderful hair - I admire folk who allow themselves to grow grey naturally. Carolyn sat for the Goward House Portrait Painters today.

Following Sargent, I painted Carolyn's face without overt blending, gradually moving from value to value with definite brushstrokes of adjacent colour. He said, search for the semi-tones. I did.
