I found an "old" (2 months ago old) practice portrait while I was cleaning out the studio. I was just doing the under painting for it just to get a grasp on acrylics before I took another series on. I realised towards the end of the under painting that this format size (10x14) was much too small for what I am used to working. Which would be about twice that. I guess you can say this was the starting point as to whether or not I could paint portraits. I think it fairs a close resemblance; being that I paint my jaw too fat, and my hair looks like I threw on a wig on. If I had just started it on a larger canvas I could have saved it. Oh well, we make no progress by leaving the fat on.
