Weekend work

Over the weekend we had to copy a painting by Lucian Freud. I did the one above. I admit I struggled with it. I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to this sort of thing, even though you cant be perfect when Freud used oils and spent years on each painting and I am using acrylics and I am only supposed to be spending no more than three hours on it.
The assignment was supposed to make us more aware of colour and the direction of brushstrokes.
