Portrait in Acrylic, not Oils

This 12 x 12 canvas was painted directly from life, with acrylics, not oils. Though acrylics are wonderful in a lot of ways, it's next to impossible to paint wet in wet and to achieve soft edges, both good things for portraiture. I used a clunky brush to paint this portrait, and a bright saturated palette.
