This is definitely becoming the 'Ella Marathon." I don't know how many layers or how many brush strokes cover this girl's face, but I just keep tweaking here and there until I think I might have it right. Then I look at her the next day and .. low and behold I find myself with my brush in my hand to darken this or lighten that or curve her cheek more or define her nose and mouth again. Anyway, here is today's adaptation. And of course I think I am done with her face again...until I look at her tomorrow. These pictures are not doing justice to this painting either. Actually, the close up one just to the left here looks about right. Will try to fix that tomorrow, too. Yikes!
