Here she is, finished. I didn't realize until I finished this that it is not entirely different from my Waterhouse project last month. (I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer!) On reflection, I think that I am finding a couple of favorite themes for me, the human face and draped cloth. I have always been fascinated by faces - what they convey and what they don't, the challenge of capturing a likeness, and generally how faces change over time. The cloth is a newer interest for me, it just seems magical to be able to create the strong impression that a cloth is draped on something - the weight of the material, how it changes in the light, and the subtly of it.
