Notes from an Easel

This one has been perilously close to being cracked over my knee so many times, that I'm glad that I stuck with it. The lighting struck me as too melodramatic-too comic book- but after giving it some thought, I figured that was my problem, and as good a reason to leave it be. The other thing that I hadn't noticed was that the jawline in the original photo reference was uneven (displaced, or broken), so beyond some cosmetic surgery, the piece is done.
For the moment, the wine beckons.
