Eyes that see more than is there

I have been really busy with work, and lots of travel, too – haven’t had much energy for painting. Rested up over the long weekend (just kidding; Donna and I went up to Port Townsend and had a blast). Grabbed myself by the scruff of the neck this afternoon and went to a local coffeeshop to do some painting. Used my portable kit – small palette, travel brushes, some pens – and did a line and wash from a photo in my Faces folder on the iPad. This is heavily altered from the photo, which is almost always what I do – I use photos to start, but I work pretty loosely.

Unhappy woman
This woman’s eyes seem to see more than is there.
