Lunch time portrait of Frida

As usual, I'm not totally happy with my effort but I'm not totally disappointed either. I spent three half-hour lunch breaks painting her in total. Painted on Fabriano 50% Cotton paper, 23x30cm.

...After thought:
Looking at the portrait again the day after, I have to admit that I am happy with the result. I should not really comment on my work until at least 24hrs have passed.

    I see, you are improving not only yours skills as a fantastic painter but also your capacity of making an apreciation of your work. Congratulation can´t be better.

  2. Satisfied, is a word that does not fit me. I'm trying real hard though, trying to squeeze into it. What a struggle! ;)
