Day 7 - Smiling Eyes

Smiling Eyes, Acrylic on Gessoed Mat Board, 10"x7"

Day 7 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

This one started on a bright gold background but it overwhelmed the rest of the painting, so in the end, I covered it all up. I do feel like I got my skin tones right here. I'm having trouble getting that softness in the chin line as people hit middle age - this one shows it a little bit, so progress.

What a beautiful smile!
This is a great portrait!
I understand what you mean by having dfficulties with the softness of the chin line...for my part, I always end up making my faces much too young !
