Back to Comfort Zone

Another feeling of relief brushes over me as I signed and decided that this painting was complete and the best I could do.

I think I will avoid portraits for a while now and go back to my comfort zone; landscapes and flowers. It is extremely difficult to get the ‘likeness’ of a person down on canvas. You can’t just make the person look nicer, thinner or have a less long nose. What you see in the person in the photo you are working from you have to paint. And I just struggle with being 90% happy with my result.

So for now it’s back to my comfort zone with the paint brushes….
