Portrait of Michelle K

This 8x10" oil sold on Ebay yesterday. I used a 1/4" sable filbert brush on gessoed wood. I think this one is very calligraphic: the strokes are like lines. I am still more comfortable with line than with tone. Maybe everyone is? Anyway, it looks a lot like Michelle, and I like it. The brushstrokes show the painting process very well!
