After pitching three canvas's I finally finished one! I just couldn't get in the grove with anything. Then this big ole fear came over me that I'd never paint a portrait again!!! My head got so negative and was just telling me to throw in the towel. I sketched this gal and was so afraid to paint her but pushed myself to do it. I'm glad I did. Feeling a bit better. comments and critiques welcomed.

Oh, you did a great job on this, Robynann.

You still have that pouty lip thing going for you.  Love it.

Except for the eyelashes which are too soldier-in-a row, the rest if fabulous.  You need a few odd clumps (some shorter;some pointing in a different direction).

Thanks Patricia, Mea, Val and Dennis... Mea I thought they didn't look right. I have a thing about putting them in now. I don't know if you've noticed but sometimes I leave them out for fear I'm going to mess the whole portrait up. This time I got brave but I was so tight when I put them in I barely put enough in and like soldiers like you said. I'll fix them. Thanks for letting me know.
