Preparation to paint a portrait


I've been looking at my photos taken of Tibetan women in my trip to Jiuzhaigou and have decided to paint a portrait of this particular woman intead of the one in the photo in my previous post. I've changed my mind because the one that I had chosen to paint initially is pretty but as I made the preliminary sketches, I realised that her features were too perfect and my attention strayed. I looked through my photos again and found one of this woman whom I thought presents the typical features of Tibetan women that make them interesting because they were unique.
