"Dad and Me"
My reference was from the monitor.
Sandy had sent me a collaged photo of her and her dad and thats what I used. I cropped the heads and then "zoom in" several times to make it large enough to see better. Unfortunately, I did not get much of her leather jacket that she loves/loved because my paper was too small. Besides, I go for the facial features. I had to guess with S's eyes because in the photo they are in deep shadow.
Took several days... mainly spent in simply looking at each and every swipe of the paint brush before moving on... nervous about screwing it up. I did turn my head to the heavens and asked for Dad to help me and I think he did. Anyway, I hope he did.
