The neck gets fixed in spite of the face.
Making art is basically reacting to annoyances and making the effort to fix them. Picasso said it was like being in a room with a draft from a window ― the act of making art is closing the window to stop the draft. Stuff gets fixed and it gets better with each fix. Here I am with the painting Untitled-10·20·2013, in its twelfth version, and the head of the woman appears too large to me. This recognition occurred to me only after I altered her neck and torso. Drat! So I show you the drawing from yesterday before the painting because (at this point) I like it better than the painting. The drawing has been designated "state 1" because I fully intend to fix a few things in it today. Cheers!
