A 10 x 8 on Utrecht 140 lb paper of Susan. Well I'm getting grief that this image doesn't look like her. Well as far as I am concerned, it doesn't matter. It doesn't have to. The main thing is does it work as a w/c painting, maybe it does. And maybe it doesn't. You narrow your vision if you only worry about a likeness. As with Picasso's Portrait of Gertrude Stein, there was no concern from him that it did not look like her. Not that I'm a big fan of Picasso but I did like that quote from him, "She will" look like the portrait.
