Portrait of Eilidh
I don’t have any progress shots for this next painting but I do have a couple of the stages and ideas I went through before it turned into the finished painting. I had originally intended this to be a large portrait - almost full figure, set within a darkened room. Here is a small basic oil sketch of the general idea. Following this idea, I had started work on the main painting, but about two weeks in came to a standstill, got frustrated and started doodling some different ideas.
