Princess of Swords

Continuing on from the two previous posts,these are the eight,ninth and tenth photos along the way(starting from the top).
I can see the important base shapes taking form nowand I'm pleased at the results here.
I'm really looking forward to getting some of the finer detailing in when this stage is complete. As many of the shaped run into each other and I want to keep the tones quite soft and dark, the detailing and her 'accessories' will be added layer by layer so as not to overwork any areas. I thought this would be a piece to challenge myself with - I wasn't wrong! Creating a painting can get a bit scary at this stage-will the finished piece live up to the hopes and vision in my mind??? They rarely do for me,but if I LIKE it that will be enough for now-meanwhile I continue to be absorbed and thriled by the whole process and my need to see it through to the end!
