Totally having underestimated how much detail is involved in this piece, I moved from the wash in to the 1st black and white layer. Sarah's dad has already seen the 1st stage and was pretty thrilled to see Sarah develop on canvas. I have been working like crazy on this, but it sure doesn't look like it. Hmmm?!
Fortunately once the grizaille is completed there is very little that needs to be done on the dress, other than a wash, since it is all white anyways.
