Portrait Layers: Free Art Video

Do you struggle with feeling stuck with your creativity at times? I recently went through this. It is a horrible feeling!!

Below, I am sharing a time-lapse video of painting of the third layer of a female face. Why the third layer? This is usually the layer where I find her face comes alive. Painting her brought me some healing and joy. I hope you enjoy. Please post any questions in the comments and join my Face Book community to share your creations.
