In my recent painting session of this
portrait (which I am really loving, I
have to admit), I worked out to bring
out the apron, its tones and color. I
pulled in a little of the background
color to it which you can see if you click
on the image to enlarge it (oh heavens,
a magnifying mirror experience!).
I have put in the darks of her hair and
spent considerable time on the subtlties
of edges in many places. I have begun
to work more on her face, though that
is usually what I do last.
