This was my third attempt at painting this pose. Within the first 30 minutes I started over three times. The model had dreadlocks so the hat does not fit exactly right but she looked great, I love the way the hat grazes the top of her head. My favorite parts that I savored until the last were her hands. I love to paint or draw hands. The focus was on her head and neck so the simple or lack of detail and darkness on the lower arms are intentional.
