Holy Smackerals!

It just SHINES with color! That underpainting really makes a difference!

I am sooo glad you finally posted your finished work. This was WELL worth the wait and one I know I will come to look at over and over again.

Did you finish the other one of Astarte too?

Hello Jodie, thanks for the comments! I am going to finish the verdaccio underpainting of the other one and should finish it in a couple of weeks. :)

BTW: The client just saw the painting today - she loves it! :)
