I find on my journey into portrait painting that I am now looking and seeing more than just a photo to copy, trying to capture the emotion behind the face.

This was also painted from the same photo ref as Wistful which I would like to say my special thanks to Babasteve (Steve Evans) on Flickr for sharing his wonderful work.
