'Une Rare Beauté'

My most recent portrait. I'm still loving that unfinished look. Hope everyone else does too (:
While I was painting this I could really tell that my colors were coming easier to me, there were some that I did that afterwards I realized I didn't even think about them. My hands just did the work. It was a really cool feeling. 
When I was doing my apprenticeship with William Whitaker he used to talk about how you always have your palette set up the exact same way, and pretty soon your hands just go to colors without you having to think about it. How cool is that!?

I revised this painting one last time, just the tea cup. Its really hard painting a picture on an object. To make the object look 3D, but the picture on the object look flat, without making that particular part of the  whole thing look flat. Does that make sense? But, I think it turned out way better, I'm very happy with the end result.
