Sorry I missed taking a pic here.... but once I am working on my subject and it is going well, I hate to stop! I was so into it that I forgot to take a photo! MaryClara was easy but the sweater....!! But it was worth the extra effort. I actually mixed 2 different photos for MaryClara and I had to get a bit creative with her hands/arms. The details on the sweater actually helped in the end to camouflage the changes.


  1. WOW that's a lot of detail on a small scale in that sweater jacket! This is beautiful and it's not even finished yet :)
    I LOVE watching your work in progresses!

  2. Thanks Peggy! The sweater was a gift from the friend who willed Scout to her... so it had to be in here. I don't usually get into that much detail... but in this case it was important and helped to disguise the changes to her arm and hand.
