I had to stop touching up this one. There always seemed to be something that I could do to give it that soft quiet peace that seems to be part of Liz. Liz's hair is very blond on the ends and her skin is so light that I wanted to try adding a dark background for contrast. It does make her pop out. Also, I wasn't sure if I should include her lip ring but both times that I asked, she said that she wanted it drawn in so here it is. The look works. This is the first time that I found the 19" x 25" paper limiting having to turn it horizontal so that her arms could be included. The whole work came out pretty peaceful. Thank you Liz.
