lack of posting was completely out of my control - I did everything I could do to make it happen, but the internet gods denied me access. Alas, I am back today in full force. The painting is progressing - my plan is to lay in the dark side and the reflected light tomorrow. I doubt that will take the whole session, so I'll probably tweak the contour as well... or go back into the highlights on the cheek. We'll see. Late.
