Been working on Emilie Floge again this week, although very short on free time at the moment so progress painfully slow! Really only the hair to go now and little final things like getting her to stand on the base. There was just enough material to cover the box in the bit I didn't need for the dress......I should have made more as it was literally cutting it fine. LOL.
In the original painting she is extremely tall and thin, so this will help create that effect whilst still having her have natural proportions underneath. I wasn't going to show her feet at all when I started but got a bit carried away with the shoes, so now there will be a little peep hole where you can look under the hem and see them with some twinkly bits too on the underskirt as a little hidden suprise :0)
