Oil portrait, 11×14

Kelsey has a pale, porcelain-like skin which was difficult to paint.  She posed outside with only natural lighting.  I find that, despite other artistic desires, I am lapsing back into my natural detailed style.  I really admire those who naturally seem to possess a more painterly style.  At this stage, I am about resigned to go with the flow.  At least there is a place in the art world for this type of expression in portraiture.
