What are you most proud of? I am most proud that I was able to give my daughter something really special for her birthday and that it has a very close likeness to her.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would advise looking carefully at the lights and darks as you paint as this is what gives the painting its depth. Be patient and use good quality paints and brushes. They are worth it for the result.
