16x12 oil on stretched canvas. Just two and a half hours in, but managed to get it sort of blocked out. I debated whether to delete this image, as I see many many corrections that must be made, now that I've moved back and taken a good look. The high key values and the little contrast of the photo are making me want to put in contrast that isn't there, so I'll have to watch that. Thank you for the good company as I painted!
