Nautilus - Progress

Of course I am giving more attention to this painting, because it is smaller. I always imagined (before I was a 'real' artist) that I'd want to almost exclusively focus on really large scale paintings. While I do have some large projects I want to tackle in the future, especially if I can work from life for them, these smaller pieces are just so satisfying. Perhaps they go faster.

Anyway, hopefully you can see the changes from the last posting. I've worked on the ottoman, her hair, and the area from her shoulder to her waist, stopping at the spine. Not satisfied yet but it's getting there!
