Since my laptop was broken and all other computers in the house are much to slow for me, I used my time to read more, to paint more and to do a total make-over of my working space. My studio is small but full of light and with a beautiful view every day of the year.
Second week of Painting Dreamy Portraits with Olga Furman was already about drawing and painting faces. Watching Olga working was wonderful and I thought that maybe painting faces isn't that hard.
