PF Portrait Comparison

I did a few things to the Paint Friends portrait painting which can be seen in the side by side comparison below. His eyes aren't level but that is the way they will have to remain in this experiment. Notice how the right side of his face has been reshaped. I softened the hairline a bit and added more shadows. The bottom and right side of his nose was reworked a bit along with more definition in the mouth area. Also changed the shape of his shoulders, and added a bit more definition to the tie. This does look more like Chris and the only area I am really displeased with is the level of his right eye.

I like your changes Ann. It looks good! So do you like doing watercolour portraits or oil portraits best? I like the watery look to the shirt and the colour you have in his face.

Thank you Deb. The changes did help to form the figure a little more. It really isn't a good painting but it was and is an excellent way to learn. Practice and more practice lol.
