This is from a number of photographs. Advise please ... What colour the second headdress and what to do with the back ground?  Still to finish the blue scarf and faces.

This is looking good so far Bill.  You have done a great job with the faces, eyes look wonderful.   I would leave the second scarf white, with a dark, blue/grey background....whatever you decide  :gl2: :painting:

 :thankyou: Mary Lou, Nolan. My wife suggested white scarf and a beige background. I think I will stick to the ladies advise Nolan, safer that way  :whistle:

I think I will have to put this in the list of "To do again", I'm thinking the faces should be more in profile to give a better composition.
Still happy enough though.
