Further progress on Flower Girl painting

This is the fourth day on this painting. It's coming along but I'm still puzzling out how to meld the effects of the smoothly, tightly painted face and hand with the palette-knife-applied looser painted background and dress. Her lower hand hasn't been addressed yet and the brick walkway hasn't been painted...just a wash of purple so far.
Just keeping you up on what's happened since late last night.
Beautiful day here in San Antonio. Walked my four miles with friends in a t-shirt and jeans this afternoon. We pay for our winters with wicked summers, but right now it's great.

Susan, this is just gorgeous. Everything looks great, face, dress, and all. I wouldn't put too much detail in the walk to compete with such a lovely little girl.
