Ambivalence (A Second Sarah)

The picture below is a fine picture.  Let’s just get that out of the way.

Aside from the model’s eyes being a bit near-set, the painting looks good: it’s balanced, the colors are satisfying, and the proportions are believable.  The hair is one of the highlights of the piece… again.  It seems hair is somehow one of my specialties.

However…

This drawing bears absolutely no resemblance to the model.  That isn’t always a problem, but it’s rather frustrating when I set out to make a picture of a specific person and failed in that endeavor.

I’ll get over it, don’t worry.  It would just be really nice to be able to consistently translate  the likenesses into paint – I’m somehow able to accomplish this in my drawings.
