Portrait - Marylyn Mayo

The Marylyn Mayo Lodge in Cairns is a home away from home for regional cancer patients who travel to Cairns for cancer treatment.  The lodge is named after Marylyn Mayo who died of breast cancer in 2002.  Her husband, Dr John Mayo, has been the lodge's major benefactor.  In appreciation of his tremendous support, the Cancer Council of Queensland has asked me to do a portrait of Marylyn.

1st Lesson - Portrait of Marylyn Mayo

Obviously,  I will be painting this portrait entirely from photos.  I've enlarged the photo to an A3 size to try and get a clearer picture.  You can see that I have drawn a box around where I wanted the head to be on the canvas, which of course is the main focus of the painting.
