Doing a Portrait Over

Doing a Portrait Over

This is cropped from a double portrait. I thought that I had finished it last year and I was about to send it to the (other) sitter. But I didn’t like the gentleman’s expression. It didn’t capture his lively sense of humour and wisdom. So I worked over it with a new expression that does. 
He isn’t quite finished. I need to finish his clothes. 
Meanwhile his portrait is so much better than it was, that I have to rework his fellow sitter because she looked ghost like by comparison!
Must get back to the easel!
