Here is the photo of Minerva I had promised a few posts back. The books and Mona Lisa have been glazed darker and this tones down their importance in the painting. The Thinker still needs work in a few areas and I want to push him back into the background more. All that I think is needed after that, is to refine the portrait and the arms more. At this point the actual portrait is more Walt Disney than Linda Lawler in style. I don't know why this happens in my portraits, but from time to time I get a definite Disney look instead of the realism I achieve in other portraits, such as the one of my husband on my website. Oh well, sooner or later I will figure this out. Focus Linda, Focus!!!!
