I’ve now blocked in the girl and the bird. I can’t say at this point that I’m happy with her dress, but it’s a start. At least it’s covered in paint so the background and grass won’t show through with whatever I decide to do.

Here’s a closeup:

And a closeup of the girl so far. I asked my son how she was looking here and he said, “She has no ear.” He’s not wrong. I admit that I’d been so focused on her face that I didn’t even think about the ear though I knew it wasn’t right. I had intentionally left her hair back like that because I knew it would be lighter closer to her face. Yes, an ear and the hairline are still to come.

Painting fingers that tiny is hard! I really think I need to get a brush with tiny, firm bristles. Let the quest begin.
