Here's a recent portrait I'm painting from an original photograph of model, Liv Sage. I'm using Geneva paint on oil primed canvas mounted to a cradled panel. I made a 1:1 laminated color corrected print to work from.
I drew the figure using Mark's method of reference lines and key points to transfer photo to canvas as accurately as I could. However, I don't think I've succeeded in capturing an accurate likeness of the model.
So, I've uploaded the photo and the painting as it stands now and ask, What do you think? Does it look anything like her? (I can't tell anymore.) Should I keep working on it, or abandon it and move on? Your feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Liv Sage, oil on mounted canvas, 16" x 20"
