Arjun – Painting

Hi Matt. I’m not finished with this piece and I need some advice on how to clean up this image. Three questions:

  1. I’m not able to simplify this hair. My choppy strokes are all over the hair and I’m really nervous about it. You know this is an important painting. What can I do to take away the choppy and painterly feeling
  2. I’m trying to go for the Robert McGinnis hair effect like in the ref. Blonde against blond or white hair against white paper like the ref.
  3. I am not able to feel an exact likeness between her face in the drawing and the photo. I’m not able to tell why.
