oil on canvas, appr 6"x6"

I painted this with a combination of brush and palette knife. I started with a brush drawing, then put in the basic values with a brush. Then, I painted most of the face with the brush. I then decided to finish it with the palette knife. I went over most of what I did with the brush with the palette knife and added the background. I painted from a picture I took of Jenny when she was here at Christmas. I may do a little touching up of this and take another photo. Jenny has a beautiful delicate face and I didn't quite capture that.

Here's a new photo. Although this isn't perfect, I like it better.
