Subtraction and Addition

I decided the artificial flower brooch was a distraction and took it off the mirror image, but kept the red knit top.

Took out the maul stick altogether and made the repainted canvas a scant half inch narrower. Worked on the hand. Before I started painting, I placed features with a few chalk marks  - my plan is to paint directly on the canvas without an under drawing.

The most fun part - recess - was working on the coat back, especially the panels made from a rose chintz. To come: many more small flowers and twining stems, a rick rack edge. I do love this coat.
