Chloe WIP 4



I’ve done most of the basic groundwork, now it’s time to refine/balance/tweek it all. As you can see, I’ve been gradually dropping the original outlines. Jeez, that top was slow and, yes, tedious… but, damn it looks great! I’m very pleased with this, so far. I love the overall softness of tone. One of the things I’ll have to do is introduce a wider variation in that tonal range, brighter highlights and darker shadow, but still keep it all soft and delicious (:

The soundtrack for this leg of the journey was: Fiona Apple, Fleetwood Mac, Girl in a Coma, Kasey Chambers, Tanya Donelly, Tosca, Tracy Thorn, Jenny Lewis, J J Cale, Lou Reed, Marina and the Diamonds, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Mirah. Two of those, first J J Cale, now Lou Reed, have died this year; very sad and a huge loss to music.
