Afghan Girl on National Geographic Cover - Episode 3
Today we painted for about 3 1/2 hours. I worked on her face, lips, eyes and hair. The lip and chin area was very challenging and required much attention to "get it right". I used the colors of her scarf mixed with fleshtones to get the colors for her lips. The shadow on her face may need to be enhanced one more time, but I will wait until I have her cloak completed before I make a decision about that. Overall, I am very pleased with the painting at this point.
