Into the third week and getting down to detail. Should be finished next week when the fine work is added. I want to add softer focus to the fabric, possibly adding in some lighter mauve and blue shades. More work is needed on the shading of the arms. The sofa I think is almost complete.
The hair has been lightened to a blonde shade and I think needs less height to it – next week. This model, one of my favourites, was coming to pose for me as I loved her blonde hair. However, a few days before the photo session unbeknown to me she dyed her hair a darker blonde! I kept on with the photo session regardless as she is so good, but was a bit sad as had blonde shades in my mind.
I also have a follower on Twitter who has bought one of my blonde paintings and is always asking me when there will be another. So Roy, this one is for you!
