Study 12612

Yesterdays Study. Ideally I'd like to paint or draw a study a day, either from life or from photo reference. Right now I'm a little slow at it, hopefully the more I practice the quicker I'll get, and the more art I'll be able to fit in my day. Skin is challenging, there are so many slight tonal shifts in it and they all transition so smoothly that a brush with any hard edge will wind up making the person look scratchy. For men it's probably okay, but for woman (unless it's pulled off stylistically) it looks incorrect.

Here's an additional small life painting from earlier this month when it had been snowing.
