Portrait Practice in the Journal

I love the way Sharon Tomlinson paints her portraits. They are fast and free and ----great!  She
has now started videoing herself---yea!! so check out her videos. It's very interesting how she paints these portraits from dark to light and adding Titanium white. This portrait turned out ok although I don't think I quite got it using her technique. Maybe that's because she hasn't finished her videos about it yet so I had to wing it. I'm going to stay tuned to see her next video coming soon.

I think you got it. I will post four and five(final) today. She is great and I like all the colors in her flesh. Perfect
