    Thanks Cesare. I have enjoyed working on it, but a bit frustrating. So many little nuances of color and texture. And the intricate details are wonderful by the original artist and I don't know if I will have the patience to go that far. It really does show what masters they were and excellent at drawing as well.

    Probably You may get a better approximation of textures and transitions by using pencil and low pressure crayon/ chalk on oil, with some blending at different blade settings....

    I will try. for me it is whatever tool works. I use felt pen, pencil and crayon mostly. Not so much oil.The hard part it seems sometimes with copying of the masters' paintings is that they are photos of the actual work on canvas... so the work for us in simulating the textures of the canvas is not always so easy.
    I think I have taken twenty years off her age as well, which was not intended, but that is okay too.

    Thank you Katie... much appreciated.
    thanks Geoff...
    glad you liked the progress on this one.
    A few things to correct and maybe will attempt some kind of simulation
    of that ornate fabric.
