Still afraid to finish the face


I am getting closer to the end, but I can’t bring myself to paint my wife’s face. No matter why I do I am sure it won’t look right. I think if I had set this up to be a looser painting it would be easier. As it is, it feels like I need to get her face right. I need to think I. Terms of light and shadow, not in terms of facial features. It’s not easy. Next time, whenever I come back to this.
