hello, this is where i stopped painting on "Hakim's or this is what it was like when i worked in bazaar". The surface would not accept any more paint, and the light was fading. the mirror i'm working from is on the floor. There's a wacky tilt and views of the underside of things, like the shoes, robe, chin, nose,etc. and sizes are odd. There is also an exaggerated curve to the gesture that is 'almost' but 'not quite'. setting up to paint. then the job search will continue.
if anyone is interested in drawing lessons, or portfolio review, let me know! i'm available.
