Painting a Realism Portrait

Hi Girls,

today I want to show you a realism portrait painting I made this week.

I attended a online class from Karen Milstein. She is a amazing talented girl who paint whimsical and realism portraits, dreamy flowers and sweet tutu in a lovely way. I love her pastel and soft way to paint and with her online class I had the courage to try a realism portrait.

This little painting is on a sticky canvas sheet and it shows my younger daughter.
This canvas sheet is perfect for me because I'm not sure where to put it down. Maybe in my art Journal, maybe in a Minibook I will made for my daughter, maybe as wall decoration... Not sure yet.

It has some time lasted until I was satisfied. Let me show you...
Above - I called her finished but during the process of sharing it on Facebook and Instagram I saw a lot of mistakes that I decided to give it another try. 

I have made ​​some improvements on her hair, nose, eyes, mouth, background and neck. I still see improvement needed but I am satisfied with the result. It needs a lot of exercise and time to paint it halfway realistically. Particularly the eyes and mouth I need to practice.
 This is the finished version with the Referenz photo (above).

I loved to paint her, I had a lot of fun and this will not be the last.

I share it with the fabulous Paint Party Friday!
