Hi everyone, I am new here. I was wondering I could get some feedback from amazing artists like yourselves, like... some critiques on what I can do to improve my alla prima style in particular for this image I pasted below. This is not complete...its a work in progress. Mark's importance on mixing the right color has already helped my approach. As I embarked on a new portrait today it really helped to drown all the noise about perfection out and consider the painting ugly motto. I am trying to paint ugly. So far it's pretty ugly so I need someone's input. Here is the original image and the painting at it's latest stage. So I am only doing the main figure not the subject in the background.
