Fighting Your Comfort Zone

and it isn't easy. 
I wanted her hair to look like a nest, the brushstrokes visible, and the bird more of a suggestion of one rather than try and render it realistically.The whole time I was doing this I wanted to slip back into my comfort of  blending and trying to get a realistic face.
Not sure what to think of it, although I really like the bird. I do like the loose brushstrokes, but I'm thinking I would like to integrate blending and loose.
In fact right now I feel like I want to get a big brushstroke and smudge it into the blue(lets see if I have the courage to do that). Kind of a mix of Francis Bacon and graffiti  artist Conor Harrington.
Just adore his work
