Soldier Girl - Work In Progress 2

I didn’t think I’d get any painting done today. I’ve been stuck at home with food poisoning (I have no idea what gave it too me but whatever it was I don’t recommend it!) but at one of the short intervals when I wasn’t doubled up in pain wondering about the merits of falling into a black hole, I discovered the joys of painting in bed.

So today I made the background darker, put base coat on the hair (Jen isn’t really blond), filled in the shirt and tie, added a few more darker shades, started painting the badges and finally added some more detail and tone to the face.
I’m pretty happy with where this is going now and may even have it finished tomorrow. Assuming I haven’t jumped into that black hole!
