Molly Part 3: The Final Layers

Completed portrait of Molly

Molly. 14x11, oil on linen panel. 2015

This is the painting of Molly nearly finished.  I've taken a break from it for a day or so to rest my eyes and I'll put some finishing touches on it when this layer is dry, although I don't think it needs much.  With a nearly full monochromatic block-in, I was able to put down this layer in just a few hours.
