Work in Progress-Portrait

As part of Miss Stacey's Summer School, I am working on a portrait of my mother and aunts. It is based on an old snapshot taken as they left to see the Beach Boys in Hollywood. The medium is oil on canvas.

At the first painting session I sketched out the figures and painted the faces. My goal was to capture a close likeness without overworking too much.
At the second session I focused on hair and clothing. I'm not quite sure about the background yet.
