Are We There Yet?????

I left Miss Krystie here ...

And, believe it or not,  I have done a fair bit of glazing, both wet-in-wet and dry-brush. I darkened all of her left side in shadow, and touched up the face. I also lightly painted some strokes of thin black on the perimeter of the painting. And I am appalled at how poorly this portrait has come up on the screen, I am almost considering not posting! It is so lacking in richness of color and depth. Never mind. I will take her to Peggy for approval tomorrow.
Sorry about the rant, but there is no comparison between the screen image and the real thing.

Thank you for dropping by, and your comments are always welcome!
