I should have posted this next to the second stage as I am very unsure about what I have done to the hair...whether I like it or not but now they are too far apart to compare. Never mind. I will think on about it. I added pastels to the background and intend to add some stencilling. I want to work (as best I can) a simple filgree pattern into the hairslide and try to paint a proper cameo lady onto the brooch so may be a while before I post the next stage....I need to make myself be really patient!
