I’ve reached the point in my harpist painting where I’m making very small changes and then having to wait while they dry. Today I have finished her eyes (nearly) added a few more shadows into her hair and lips and put the basic colour onto the tuning pins. With any luck I’ll be able to add a few more tiny alterations and put in the harp strings. I think that addition will make the painting look very different as it will add detail to the big empty patch to the left of the painting and it should make the background colour fall back a bit.
I can’t wait to see this one finished and framed!
I’ve already got my next painting which will be a pet portrait lined up. I’ll be starting him tomorrow.
