some paint themselves
Sometimes this is actually easy. This is one portrait of 8 that I did a couple weeks ago for a publisher in Austin, Texas, and for whatever reason the drawing was easy and it really just painted itself. I keep it really flat , which I like and gave it just enough value change to create a little bit of form. I was also happy with how the hair became more of a pattern rather than actually painting hair. Sometimes I feel like I'm not even making the decisions when I work. When I'm in the groove, the painting almost dictates it's direction. Grateful to whoever is doing that!
