PPF: My final Modigliani

Several months ago, I began a Modigliani challenge, sponsored by Ayala.  You can read about the challenge in this post. I chose four different Modigliani paintings to copy and finished the first three in March.  This last one has been sitting in my art journal, half-finished, for quite a while. I chose Paint Party Friday to finish it up, and I'm pretty happy with it! I've been playing with water colors a lot lately, and it was really nice to return to using acrylic paints. Ayala is currently running a 29 faces challenge in May; check it out if you're interested. (I did her 29 faces in February challenge and really liked it.) Thanks for the challenge Ayala, and thanks to Eva and Kristin for sponsoring Paint Party Friday - it really does inspire me to pull out my paints at least once a week and exposes me to new fabulous artists.  You can check out this week's party by clicking on this link.
