Davi's Mama - WIP 2

Believe it or not, I am not trying to freak you out with this, but this is where I have stopped for now. I see that some of the edges I thought I had softened are still pretty sharp so will have a go at that when I return to the painting. Lots more to do before I get detailed here, like I said earlier, most of her face is in shadow and she has very sharp features to I have to get the shadows right before I start defining the features that are in the shadows.

PS...Please note my handy hint above. Whenever you think you have finished a step just take a photo of it and post it on your blog for all the world to see, because then you will see what is wrong with it. I hate it when that happens!

Tim...Thanks for stopping by and giving me some encouragement! I have committed to going very slowly on this one since it could very easily go South at this point.

I checked out your blog and see that you do great portraits. I'll check back in later to explore more of your work.
