Now I’m at the stage where everything is painted in and I’m looking at the entire canvas, judging balance and looking for small (hopefully) screw-ups to fix and things to adjust. I thought her jacket was looking too blue-ish so I laid a darker glaze over it. (Some of what you see in this photo on both of their coats are shiny reflections from the lights in the studio. Unavoidable with oil paints.)
Speaking of screw-ups, there was an alignment problem with the previous cleavage so I repainted that area.
Much nicer! (ahem, well - moving on…)
