Hairs Temperance

I enjoyed getting the Raw Sienna into the hair, using some Prussian Blue to counter the yellowness of the pigment. I ragged some of that blue onto the wings while I was at it, and I beginning to see how these will work, with soft layers of whites, creams and blues to create a feathery quality. Some subtle definition of the shapes of the feathers would pay off.

Her face is looking good, except for a little buggy-eyed-ness that I must attend to later.

I returned to the studio to find that things are vastly improved here: not only do we now have wireless internet up and running, but the studio is nice and warm, thanks to the new air conditioning unit that was just installed. It makes a huge difference! I am so grateful to the people who did the installation of both.
