An alla prima portrait with a few revisions.

Before and after shots of the picture I made last Monday.  I really liked painting this woman with her up turned face.  In the first one, her forehead doesn't look like it is tipped back to go with her raised chin.  So, in the revision, I shaved a little off her forehead. Then - Yikes! - I noticed that her earring was coming out of the side of her cheek, not from where her ear would be, so I changed that too. And since the picture was taken, I have softened the shadow on her right cheek.  This seems to be part of a "yellow chair" series.
