After a few earlier attempts, I fixed few distractions.
Taking up all the available space for the placement of head.
Its a real hard one for me. So, I covered part of the canvas leaving work space peeking through a waste-paper frame. Problem solved. Once reached to the corners, I removed this temporary paper-frame and voila, I have a blank border available and the main subject doesn't seem to confined within.
Mood can dictate a lot.
So can the weather. So, be prepared for this.
Some days are oil days, others are pastel
Just deal with it.
Right days versus not so right ones
There is nothing a deep breath can't fix.
