Portrait Study

Hey everyone. I dont know how many of you are going to keep working over the winter break but I am determined not to let myself become rusty.
This is a alla prima portrait done within 90 minuets during a session of the Dirty Palette Club. I found myself struggling off and on most of the time. The two biggest issue I found myself doing were over blending the paint, making everything muddy, and worrying about smaller shapes to early. My lack of patience lead me down the wrong path yet again. Bigger shapes first, then smaller ones, not vice versa.
I also need to think before i apply or mix my paint. This is the reason for my muddy colors and over blendeding.
