I really didn't know what I was getting myself into when I decided to take on 100 portraits. Right now I'm about to start number eight. I am however learning a lot from the practice. As of right now I have learned that I enjoy starting a project way more then finishing. All of the fun for me is in the first 30 minutes of the project. This is exactly why I'm doing this. I know the reason I don't enjoy finishing as much, is because I don't know how to all that well; not as much as I want to anyhow. I know I have decided to add on to my workload. I'm going to start doing more academic studies of the face. I'm going to try and study bones, muscle, proportions and wrinkles a little more. This is going to force me to forget about the August deadline. Now I won't set a deadline. Instead, I'm just going to try to get it done quickly. In other words, it'll be over when it's over, and the last mark has been made.
Here is what I have so far.
