Eeee! Not only did I finish a painting today, but I started a fresh one. I love days like this~
Here you can see two Work In Progress shots of my finished painting. At the time these photos were taken, the painting wasn't quite finished... In the photo on the right, I was finishing up the first layer on the dress. In the image below, I was second layering some areas to merge patches that formed from different paint days. Also- to include additional details that I missed in the first layer. You can see where the second layer & oiling out stopped in the hair- it is somewhat more matte towards the top.
I am happy to finally wrap it up after having it sit on and off the easel for the past few months. :) Contemplating which title to choose (I have two in mind). Keep an eye out for the finished piece!
