This is the painting in its most recent stage. The water here got a second layer of oil paint, where I added more light colors and yellows and enhanced some of the highlights.

Below is the first painted layer of water. I took this photo under studio lighting as supposed to the natural light in the photo above.

Here is a water close-up:
I am really enjoying her face, and therefore keep taking pics of it. The woman received soft oil glazes as well, which helped bring out her skin tones, and added richness to the colored pencils.
On another note, I have a bunch of art shows coming up during October and November, I think five... so stay tuned! The first exhibition I will be participating in is the Digable Arts Festival. It's a two day event in Hoboken, NJ on Oct. 15 & 16. I did last year, and it was pretty awesome, so I am excited for this year's. For the first time I will have mini prints of "the republic", and perhaps "mango and piña". I might also showcase the finished original "rabbit stew"! :)
