"Head Study 4"

 6"x6", oil on gesso board

I am enjoying young people at the college. They are like humming birds in the fresh air.
I met Daniella at Pierce college art class I am taking this Fall. She is only 19 yrs old and so beautiful.
I thought I will do a quick study of her from a photo which I took.
Well! so much of quick study!
I was repainting over and over to capture my impression of her.  It is  almost impossible to capture just the essence  from the photograph without  copying the photo..
I had to stop here before I totaly scrub off  whole paiting out of  my frustration. At least I have something to revisit later to see what I was trying to achieve from this study.
