Cindy, Continued ... or Don't Depend on Reference Photos
I've been playing slowly with Miss Cindy for the last ten days or so, and just realized [when looking at some other shots I took] that there is a fair sprinkling if brown in her coat. Light bulb flashes over my head!!! "Cindy" ... "cinnamon" ... yes, that's where her name comes from ... hmmm. So in addition to intensifying some areas here and there, I've been stroking in bits of light brown. The owner-to-be was here earlier today, to float Bruno's teeth, and he most heartily approved of the painting so far. He said I had really captured her expression and personality. That's always good! More to follow.
