Portrait progress continuing!

I've started putting in the lovely
hair strands across her face. Of course
one needs to have the face properly
developed in order to then do this.
It is also interesting when doing the
mouth on a young girl who doesn't
need to wear lipstick, just how delicate
the slight blush of color is!
Also note that the background has been
more developed. I have put more light
behind her head. It has a subtle diagonal
flow that forms a sort of X with the flow
of her entire body position.
I need to lighten up the dark shadow
of her apron by her elbow and modify
the tones of the apron just above it.
And then there is......... OK, enough.
Stay tuned!
