This was one of those paintings that was hard to photograph.  There's quite a bit of detail in the face that didn't come through in these shots. I will photograph this with my big camera at some point which will be a lot more accurate than my point and shoot.

Since you still seem to be enjoying them,
  here's a few in-progress shots for today's painting.




First Step - Paint the eyes.






Second Step -
Paint in light and medium mid-tones wet into wet.



Third Step -
The background wash and swirls were added. The
 painting was finished by lifting and tickling areas of
 pigment with a damp brush and adding a few darker mid-tones.

I hope you are having a magical day.
