The Completed Portrait

Well, I must say, all in all I am very happy with how this portrait turned out. I would have liked to give the feeling of dawn a little more accurately with harsher shadows and warmer tones in the face, but I still like the painting despite the fact that those elements did not work out as I had wished. I used a palette knife for the grasses in the background and that was a lot of fun, I had a good flow going, directionally speaking. 🙂
