Here a few photos of a portrait that I am currently working on. It is made after a photo that I discovered on Unsplash.

I particularly liked the subtle contrasts of the red-brown hair and the green background and clothing. Her looking over the glasses was another factor. It is still a lot of work to do, especially the hand is not yet good, and the frame of the glasses needs some improvement. However, my goal is not a photo-realistic representation, so I try to avoid too many details.

I prepared the canvas prior to painting with modelling paste en gesso to create the texture.
