When I was first painting her, I was playing down the bags under her eyes too much, but they're one of the defining characteristics of her face, and once I bumped them up a bit, her face started coming together.
Lately I've been doing a lot of jobs that are portraits of older guys, so it's really nice to paint a beautiful woman for a change. Plus, Dave cropped the painting in closer, so it looked really nice and big on the page.
