Stuck on this painting for now.


  • edited February 2018
    Welcome, very nice work and you have the person's likeness spot on!
  • I started this oil painting about 1 yr. ago.  18" x 24" It's the first portrait I have tried and it had to be of my mother-in-law when she was a nurse in WW2.  I have no formal art training but I watch videos/read.  I am in no way close to being finished with this, I know that.  I just got stuck on what to tackle next.  I thought I might complete the background next.  I should have thought about what I was going to paint before I picked this 8" x 10" blk/white photo.  I am guessing at all the color.  I thought that if I took a break from it for awhile, that I would be inspired to continue with completing it but no such luck.  Any suggestions?  
  • I don't know what else I could suggest at this this time, such a nice portrait!
