Ongoing: I have filled in the left forearm with just shades of pink and lilac and I like the softness of it, though you can't really see it in this lousy phone photo. I will look for more areas to soften, like the chest and perhaps her left shoulder, removing a bit of the anatomical detail. I still need to put in the bikini bottom and finish up the right leg and foot.
I have a few bubbles I am working on here and there, those are always fun. I allow myself one every so often as a reward for finishing something. But the best were her beautiful eyes, so recognizeable even distorted by the water, and the nail polish, for which I chose a lovely shade of rosy red...Veronica actually wore each nail in a different color, but forget it.
Finally I shall be concentrating on the direction of the light, making sure it is coherent. It seems to come from the upper right, so I'll have to keep that in mind.
No news yet on background...Jackson has suggested BLACK!!!
