Portrait close-up

I took time to complete the portrait of Julie in my studio. Her eyes are clear, intense and wonderful to paint. Each face is different so I approach each portrait with a fresh palette and attitude. There is an element of discovery with each portrait, how am I to reveal the individual character of the person. Revealing the person within the paint and pushing the media as far as I can, makes the portrait an exciting and always challenging subject.
