the garden - work in progress

It's chilly this morning. If someone were to have told me that today's date is November 12th I would believe them. But there is something very comforting about working indoors when it's so chilly outside. I've been listening to Devendra Banhart and sipping on Earl Gray since I woke up, so I really can't complain.

On to my painting. I've been working on the hair while allowing the skin dry. I'll be adding plenty more strands later, but this is a start.

I'm about to start on the tattoos now. Soon enough she'll be covered in flowers, leaves and poetry.

You're really really good, and I LOVE how you do the tattoos, but what do you have against foreheads? Most of your ladies could benefit from a little more skin above their eyebrows. It looks like you sometimes have more forehead in the earlier stages, but then you go crazy with the hair and it gets lost.
