1st sitting for the portrait of mum for my Archibald entry..

I started on the portrait of mum I'll be entering in the Archibald.I had a 2hr sitting with her yesterday.It was cramped as the only place that had nice lighting was out in her sitting room with her sitting near the window but the easel was cramped up & I had to back into the toilet to get back to see how things were going! I'm only doing a head and shoulders portrait but we had nice daylight streaming in through the window for sidelighting.I was really happy with the underpainting half way through but kept going as you must and had to leave it at a yuck stage as I was getting worse and she was tired.I'll have to correct the likeness here and then go out & start with Oil over the top next time.. + call the paper.I'd like to get onto it soon but next week is looking busy..
