Portrait Study from life
This is what I am going to call the final version. There are still many things to change with the eyes and cheeks, but given the amount of hours already spent on the painting, continuing the process would only stall the other artwork in line. Additionally, there is no reference image to follow. The recollection of transitional shadows, shapes, and highlights has almost faded. Oddly enough, there is little difference between them.
