There is always a place on any project where you start to feel like you are over the hump but the reality is that details take longer than large areas of color. It may look OK now but it will need lots of work on shadows, highlights and details before it is truly complete. I gave the garter details and jewels a wash of burnt umber to draw out the details (kind of like an outline). The base color for the Red velvet consists of a mixture of Cadmium Lake Deep, Cadmium Reed Extra Deep and a touch of Lamp Black, all old Liquitex Oil Colors. Once dry I will complete the shadows with black glazes and highlight with Cadmium Red Deep. The face was completed in the usual way as described in previous postings. My next step will be to paint the hair and begin working the whites.
