Grandma session 4

So so so happy with this right now. the center is complete. It all came together once I was happy with her face...it allowed me to move on to the dress and the details.



The next step will be the outer border. I plan to paint it white and possibly use either the vintage train ledger paper like I did in this painting:



or maybe use some other vintage paper lying around...I do have some german bible pages that might do nicely.
