John Adams Finished

This is as far as I am taking this miniature. I tried to put in the tiny little white highlight you see so often in the eyes, but it looked wrong. Overpowered the rest of the portrait, even though it was not pure white like his shirt collar.
Gilbert Stuart did not use the highlight in his George Washington painting I have copied and it looked right, not overpowering .
