I keep going back and forth between the veil, but maybe this will work now. I got to use my favorite white (WN Iridescent) which works well for veils if dry brushed. The only thing is that this color needs to be used sparingly or it will totally take over with the sparkle.
The painting still needs clean up and there are still a couple of areas that are bothering me. Photo number one is a bit off in skew, since a breeze picked up while I Was trying to take a photo. Image #2 detail is more like the real thing.
Below is the finished painting ~
