This is how it is looking so far.
Since the last post I have added some stenciling to the background and then started work on the figure. There is still work to do on her, she needs hair colour and dress detail and a little more refining. At the moment her hair and dress are just painted with gesso.
When it is finished I will give it a coat of acrylic wax to help protect it as I intend to fill the book with full page paintings of different faces and figures. I will probably drive myself crazy trying to keep the cover clean. I know I probably should complete the pages first and then add the cover but I know I will want to put the book together first.
I am linking this post to Paint Party Friday and if you visited last Friday and want to see the finished painting from last week, you can see it here.
