It has been a while since I have made any progress on this piece but with Open Studios coming up soon, I had some motivation to bring it back out and try to finish it off. I have made quite a bit of progress in the last week and look forward to seeing it completed. This painting is quickly becoming one of the best in the make-up series (although I am not sure anything will ever be able to replace my all time favorite). I did not even intend to shoot photos of Amanda when I got the reference for this piece (I was there to shoot her roommate) but I am glad she popped in and volunteered because those photos have led to some great paintings.
