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