Gwyeneth Paltrow,as a hair-salon owner,and beautician.My last "Portrait-Theme."--I was dead tired,when I started this,I could not literally draw a straight line,I could not even draw the lines of her face;ugh,kept erasing over and over!So,I'm sorry,it IS crude,I was racing with time,I have to get up tomorrow morning,go to the bank,sigh. How many years does it take to get so good with this software,that you can just whip it out,and not look unneat,and sloppy?Cause I just cannot do it.whew.I just thought,"ok,the deadline is like commercial art,soon in a few hours,it will be Sept.,right?portraits all over,in theme room,you have a deadline."So,I pretended I was "commercial",this was a job,even if I was tired,had to get it done...just this last portrait,please,God. I really wanted to do Paltrow,from a photo,did not know HOW to do her,till the last minute I was working on her.and it comes to me"she has such overly exotic styled long hair!!Hair salon!!" I mean,the woman is ALL hair!!

All hair, eh?
I certainly do love the style you did her hair in. xD
