Some have been clamoring to see some works in progress, probably for the enjoyment of watching me struggle, and this seems to fit well with one of my new goals, to work on longer, un-timed pieces.
I'm revisiting a piece I was not entirely happy with, Kaia at the Beach, from last August. You can see the old one at this link.
The water was too dark, there was no warmth in the skin tones, and the form looked rather flat. So here I've begun to address some of these issues. I kinda ran out of steam when it came to dealing with the face. More solutions to follow in that regard.
