Portrait #22 - Mel

6 x 6 oil on panel

Such a hard one I took on here! That crazy smile and the shape of the eyes were going to make the likeness in this one. I'm not sure I nailed either one exactly. But I got closer than the last time I tried to paint her. I do like how the glasses turned out, and how you can see part of the nose through the lens. The eyes were fun to do also. I exaggerated the color throughout.
