I might be finished with the face, I'll probably pick at it a little more throughout the rest of the drawing. I still need to work more on the hair.

I start every drawing the a detailed cartoon transferred onto the paper, then the gold leaf is laid down. The drawing needs to be perfect at this stage because I won't be able to move the gold around once the drawing gets started.

I decided on the magenta color. Venetian red is just too orange for a nice dress color.

New Figure painting. I'm still deciding between dress colors, earthy red or magenta.
