Couldn't keep my hands off this and so worked for about 3 hours on hat and cloth.  Still waiting on the giraults to adjust the skin tones.  I posted this because something amazing happened as I added more green and brown--the in your face oranges and pinks of the skin started looking skin-bronze, almost like I eventually want them.  Nolan and Dennis always talk about this but this time it just seemed so dramatic.  I'm glad I did more before going back to the face soon.

Gosh - Lynn, this is fantastic! You need to submit this to a county fair somewhere - this is a first prize waiting to be pinned! I don't know what more you could possibly do to make this better…bravo!

Thanks Sharon and Danielle.  I always appreciate your comments :1hug: .  No, Danielle, I haven't touched the inside of the hat, those lines are my drawing.  I thought I might mess some more with the face so didn't want to stick my hand in the hat if possible--you know how that goes!.  My friend calls me peppermint patty because I am always such a mess when I finish a painting session.  Also haven't finished anything else either.  I need to clean up the cloth some more and more detail on the outside of the hat.  This will be a bit of a long term project but really enjoying this one.  I won't bore anyone with more posts, I'll wait til I finish.

Lynn, this is marvelous! I agree with Dennis--finish the inside of the hat and then STOP!
