from memory, from life

I took the portrait of Kim for the first time back to the location and worked on it from life. I'd started it from a drawing and blocked it in from memory of the colors and light. It had gained such a momentum and direction from memory, so it was interesting to take the painting and work on it from life. I'm still working on it but it's looking good and I'm enjoying it! oil on canvas, 30 by 30
