It's amazing how much better things look when you spend a bit of time on them. (Yeah, yeah, I know - I should have figured that one out years ago.)
I usually spend ages on the face and not so much time on the details. But instead of rushing my way through this drawing, I took the time to get the flowers right. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the process - and it's make a huge difference to the piece.
OK, lesson learnt. No more skimping on the details. Cross my heart.
PS. She's still a work in process, but not too far to go now.
