And more on the commission...

This shows my work over the weekend, three full days and nights!   Just for your reference, I did not use anything to save my whites, like in the grass or flowers or the highlights in her hair.  I painted around the parts I planned to save.  Also I do not use white paint, all highlights are the white of the paper showing through!

The grass is finished but I will probably smooth it out near the end.   I am starting off with the under washes to her pants.

Here I smoothed out the upper sidewalk and have gone deeper into the pink pants.  Also started shadows on her shirt.

More to the shirt.

Almost there.  A few more hours to just tie it all together.
