I wanted to paint a human face again (in this case, my daughter). Right after embarking with this work I remembered all the pain I had with the previous portrait attempts... and I am back in an endless struggle. It’s so hard, and no end in sight. There is something I must approach the wrong way - what exactly it is, I haven’t figured out, but I will find out! I know that I won’t be able to sleep tonight - my brain is working on overdrive thinking about a better way.
