Yesterday's post with the image of the portrait I was working on was met with very positive comments.  Today I finished it and am pleased.  The hair was a challenge due to the fuzziness of the curls and the light that glowed from behind.  My vision for the painting was to capture the light in the hair and to give a light airy magical feel like a fairytale princess.    Here is a close up and the finished piece.  My efforts now will be to spend more time on the figure and the portrait.

By the way, this was painted on a panel which I haven't used for a few years.  I don't know why I got away from using this smooth surface.
