Hair is now my favorite thing to paint I think. The wooden stake came together famously as well. I'm really excited about this one. It's working out well and is a powerful image.
I'm still waiting for the orangey underpainting to dry so I can continue on her face. The sky worked out well. For whatever reason, skies are the easiest thing for me to paint and they always look great. This will be done in a few days. Some toning down here, a scumble there, and that should be it. Just in time for Halloween!
