Wrapping up a portrait class.  Planes of the face and some feature work in oil.

Planes of the face 
Features, nose and mouths
It looks weird to have noses and mouths floating about, doesnt it?  Where are the eyes?  forgot to photograph them! While everyone has slight variations in their features, it's still necessary to practice painting the basic structure.  And although I was teaching, it was a good review for me as well.  I don't work often in oil these days so it was nice to get back to it.  I think I need to do some portrait work in oil again!  

Next comes a well deserved vacation.  Look for some sketches in the future!
