Karin accompanied Garette and was my last portrait sitter on day one of painting.  All I remember was that she had, to my color-challenged eye, this incredibly beautiful alabaster skin and I was thinking to myself how the heck am I going to replicate this color on cardboard.  Well, I did my best, then Karin, Garette and I went out and had a nice meal together.  Perhaps the best lessons I learned this first day of painting portraits on cardboard were to just jump in and course correct along the way and that it was okay to be satisfied with a likeness approximating 80% of my portrait sitter as I was devoting only about 90 minutes to each portrait.
