This is my second try using oil paints to paint a person. The first wasn't as good, so I think I'm learning. It's a tough medium though. I think paint in general (save watercolor) tends not to jive with me. Which is all the more reason to work harder at it. I think the hardest parts are the smaller details, and the last few hours of work. The eyes and mouth, along with the nostril were the toughest part. It requires the steady hand I tend to lack. I'm pretty proud of what I've managed to accomplish though, given this is only my second attempt with the medium.
