Plans for Portrait

I had Julia take my profile portrait....

Grid lines plotted.

Charms to go on the bottom: two ankhs, music lover, desert rat, artist, tea drinker, sewer, (ruler to help with art and sewing....)

Portrait Progress IV

Entire face is done!
Now to decide on background, I'm thinking greenish gray, also what sort of detail do I want to put in the shirt?
(I wish I had worn a plain shirt. I have a muted turquoise silk shirt, that would have been perfect....)

Portrait Progress V

Background is a combo of three colors: cool muted green #522, greenish tan #3013 and lime green #166
I played with all the potential shirt colors and decided to make it a deep greenish turquoise
(Despite not having worn a plain shirt, I can still decipher where the areas in shadow are....)

Portrait Progress VI

Debating adding a few more rows of space behind the face, before it's off the hoop for further work.
(Anticipating a brown border of some design....)
