    There is a lack of definition and structure in the faces and hands.

    Perhaps I took Sargent's advice too literal - its not what you paint, its what you don't paint.

    Words of wisdom for the advanced student; most people better paint what they see/know, depending on their skill level.

    You remind me of me in my younger years. A school advisor had told me that learning is about cleverly leaving out material. I got the 'leaving out', didn't understand 'cleverly' and had to repeat one year.
