Progress is seemingly slow on this portrait. Details in the eyes and the highlights on the cheek needed more reworking. It appears that the only progress is with the other eyebrow. The scanner is unable to pick up the subtle shading that is emerging on the forehead. The fine lines of the hair are also not evident in the scan…just the dark shading at the hairline and through the center of the scalp is showing up so far. This reminds me of translucence and etherial nature of this friendship. At times my friend is here and there and everywhere helping to maintain an even keel. Then in a flash there is scattered flailing…awaiting her timely return.
