Every 5 or so weeks I try to paint a subject I struggle with, these weeksa re PWYH weeks (Paint what you hate), and this week results are no exception LOL, and the reason why I am no portrait artist - hehe

I was happy with my drawing.. about 8x7inch (yes I know huge for me)

and that's where I should have left it!! probably 1.5hr

because when I started addin paint it definitely went to ugly..
this is about 3 hrs

will likely abandon it as a learning experience, but will look this evening, after church/work see if I can see any hope of redemption for it - LOL

Yes - work through the pain. The drawing is great and you can redeem it with gouache.

I agree with Rozzi. Work through it if you can. The drawing was very well done. I like your acronym.

I can identify with you re portrait painting ...so I admire your attempts...and like the sketch as well!...but continue on the painting, coming along!

Great drawing Dominic. You got the proportions exactly right. If you have some pastels, you can overlay and blend your colors for a very successful ending:) They are my go-to remedy when I lose my whites in a watercolor.
Gouache to blend over would also work.
