Painting Study - Kiera Knighley...


I wasn't intending on doing another painting study today (like the one I did earlier of Olivia de Haviland) - but after reading James Gurney blog post about painting advice from John Singer Sargent (http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/2011/07/do-not-try-to-make-pretty-picture.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blogspot%2FNVaYV+%28Gurney+Journey%29) I thought I'd give it a try.

The image was originally for painting jam of Knightley at Drawingboard (http://www.drawingboard.org/) that I never got around to. Trying to tighten up on the eyes and leave everything else less finish. It worked in general - but the eyes look a bit big still.
