Noble Woman III

Finally, this piece is finished! I've been working on it off and on since September. Some pigments take longer to dry than others, and this veridian green took forever, plus it was super-transparent, so I had to layer it up over time to get the dark areas really dark. But I think the results made it worth it – there is a very luminous quality to this painting that doesn't come across in a photograph due to all the layering, a bit like very thin layers of stained glass.
