Session 7: Completing the portrait. Painting in the rest of the background as well as the foreground was a good opportunity to work with my palette knives as well as my favorite putty knife. After that was done I spent the last day touching up places here and there that needed work. Now it is time to let it rest and move on. I look forward to adding this to my "Visiting England" series. After painting so many landscapes and sheep it was refreshing to get back to a portrait.
