Angel progress

I'm making progress on my latest painting.  I carried it all over the house and even outside trying to get my phone to photograph the colors right.  It didn't work out.  She is much more vibrant in person.

A WIP update

I'm not quite finished but she is coming along.  Lots of color changes were made, I think I want to sand down some areas too.  I've started keeping a journal on my process and I think it will be helpful in the long run.  It's not a pretty art journal, more like a study journal.  I write down how I begin, what I like and don't like, notes about happy accidents, etc. etc.  One thing I like about this painting is the little tiny bits of stamping that are peeking out on the sides of the figure.  They are close to her body so you almost have to search for them.  I think she will morph into some kind of an Angel.
