Ribbon Dress

I’ve added colour to the ribbon dress worn by the girl on the right, using some Raw Sienna mixed with to fill the shadow areas, then picking out the highlights of the individual strips.
The Empress’ face is deleted again and will be ready for the third version once the foundation white is dry. I think this one will turn out much more effectively, although figuring out her position was tricky because I’ve altered the girl on the left a little so my points of reference have changed.
