FINISHED: "Pinkie," from The Beribboned Series, 12" x 16", acrylics on panel. Available (when finished) to the first asking nicely, $579 (includes s&h inside the US). Thank you so much.
Pinkie got a facelift, literally. I put all my references away, including the ribbon setup. I redrew her features from memory, then decided that she needed to be a lighter value than the ribbon. Then I adjusted the bow a bit, too, and tucked her ear behind, so it all perched perfectly on her head.
Because I was able to listen to the painting (instead of being married to my references and original concept), Pinkie's portrait turned out far nicer.
Thanks for supporting my art,
