oil pratice after seeing at-ta oil paintings I thought better have a go as in the past was allways careful with oil paint my Jewish Blood :D so I've imported a image a little girl I took photo in mall she had stopped to stare wondering what was behind that hair. just put few touches in gave her a blue coat and some highlights but its good practice and I think it will help when I start splashing the oil around I tried resizing the painting and the canvas the result my fav; half a head can I get it back suggestions thanks

Ooooh! LIKE! :D If you are sometimes going to be using photos as a foundation, some experiments with layers and blend modes may prove interesting. Likewise fiddling the opacity of your upper layers. Enjoy. . .
