WIP Sundays, Second Rough Mondays, Finished Product Someday?

Oh, yes. Very much yes. I had no idea that it was going to take this direction, and I was struggling with the bottom left corner, but then it all fell into place deliciously today. I'm still unsure where the detail on the face is going (suggestions anyone? I'm a fan of the facial star, both with make-up and compositionally, but I don't know if I should darken or lighten or how well it reads) but this piece has done such a good job of telling me where it wants to go thus far, I'm just going to fix it, toss it on my wall and keep my ears open to what it wants. Hopefully it has ideas about the hair, too, because I'm at a bit of a loss there. Ideas?

With sheer luck and any sudden unanticipated free time, I'll have prints of it to sell at Folklife with weekend when Cirk du Fantastik is performing.


  1. That looks pretty awesome. I think keeping the hair white will be fine,it contrasts pretty well. On the down side that draws attention to it instead of the rest of the pic. It should also be noted that this is definitely not my area of expertise.

  2. Yeah, I'm thinking about leaving the hair white, it works with the rest of it color-wise. I feel like it's a little unfinished, though...
