Oil on gessoed matboard

Apart from the occasional still life and landscape, portraits of people in pencil were mainly all I did before I joined the painting-a-day movement. This oil portrait is the first in the Daily Painting series. I am not very pleased with the result. I wasn’t able to pay much attention to details and, also, I wanted the colors to be livelier. Being my first portrait done in just about 6 hours, I guess, I’m not yet used to creating portraits in such a short period of time.
