Closing in on a finish

I had to widen her shoulders and soften the background. A palette knife helped. I simplified some shapes in her hair, too, and changed some highlights in her face. As always, I'll look at it again in the morning. My photos are coming out pinkish, when the skin tone has more ochres in it. Thank you, Jo, for the great critical feedback (sweetly provided in email vs in public comment.) I appreciate it!

I still think she is such a cutie. It is so hard to get colors to look great on a monitor, and then it is probably different on another one. Sigh. Some artists swear by scanning..hard to do with wet oils and pastels, huh?
