I finished this portrait from life at the National Academy today. The dimensions are 9 x 12 inches, and the medium is oil on linen board. It took three sessions, a total of nine hours.
I was aiming for a smoothly modeled face like
Ginerva de' Benci
with a rough background for contrast.
The painting still looks unfinished but my instructor liked the sketchy quality and suggested that I stop working on it. And so I did.
