Decisions Made!

I gave a lot thought to what to do about the hair in this new work.   Actually, I love the shape of her head, the intensity of her eyes - all of it...

I decided to darken the background, adjust size of head on right side to accommodate ear, clean up ears...the pinkie finger need adjustments too.  Now that that's done - I made the decision - NO HAIR!  I love her just the way she is.

What to do - what to do - pondering her hair.  Mixed mediums over an existing painting.  I love the immediate gratification of the "old" layers of paint showing through - the texture is great!
