Cabbage roses, striped sleeve and background

Mixed colors for the background and put the first layer on - I intend the right side to be darker than the left, and a sort of warm medium/dark green with brown swatches. This is still pretty transparent but I'm happy enough with it to keep going with that background palette.
Worked on the coat sleeve and the rose panels. Tweaked the nose of the mirror image. Just cheerfully plugging along. Looking forward to developing the bronze mirror frame. Considering changing the knit top in the mirror image to something that resembles the coat.
The big challenge will be painting the 60 year old face on the canvas with the right amount of distortion for the angle.
