I wanted to do a bit of realism practice. It's not a style I'm entirely comfortable with nor one I push all the way when I do try my hand at it, but I like to dabble in it every so often. I feel like, more than any other style I might play around with, it helps me the most over all. Of course, I needed a subject, and I'm quite fond of Olivia Wilde's face, so she seemed as good a candidate as any.
