The wall

Here’s the result of the days work. I put a second layer of flesh tones on the legs, defined the white towel with some burnt sienna and worked a little longer on the wall, which obviously needs much more work. This layer’s a good start, but I want to bring in some lichen and plant life, and perhaps some climbing roses peeking over the top, suggesting that beyond this stage of the alchemical process the rose garden awaits.

Time to run and do my yoga.
