Life 8 - stitching finished and painting begun

Just a quick update to show you the first coats of paint.  I'm fond of the parchmenty colour with the blue but will have to work on the flesh tones now to bring them together.  Only a few more coats to do!!!   

I shan't show it again until it's finished, but I'm really excited about Life 9 which has a cracking pose, and can't wait to share with you.

Portrait in parts
