Thanks for all your comments. I thought I would share my progress on this painting. After staring at the painting for days, and rereading a book I have "Oil Painting Secrets from a Master" by Linda Cateura that quotes David Leffel's views on painting I decided to stop looking at my model (other painting) and paint what the painting needed, so I faded out the one hand (decided it wasn't important) and made some changes to the nose and lips. You are right, Julie Riker, so much can change in a portrait with a little dab of paint! I think I made her more attractive, and that makes the whole painting better.
