Painting Noses on Portraits

As you can see, my nose on this gal just felt too large and I have never just wiped something off of a painting like I did this day, applied a light color acrylic and gesso, and dried it with my handy dandy hair dryer, then redrew and repainted. Yes, that was even when the eyes were done, but I just needed too. The nostrils were just too wide and originally the model's nose was not that wide.

This all takes practice, so bare with me in these illustrations. If you look closely you will see differences.
