Rahab: a new version

This is the start of a new Rahab painting. The basic foundations of her face.

I’ve painted quite a lot more since the photo, but the newer part (while ok in isolation) doesn’t really fit with the part in the photograph. A clash of styles.

The second part wasn’t planned. It was the result of scrubbing away a lot of paint that wasn’t working. What was left looked quite effective, but is too different in appearance to the rest of the painting.

I’m not sure how to approach the rest of it. Hopefully I’ll work  something out.
