I'm enjoying seeing this one rounding into shape. Are you working from a model or photo in this one?

The background is loosly based on a photo taken inside a cathedral by a friend of mine. The figure is from a group of photos of one of my favorite models posing in front of the studio doors at my co-op. I crashed and burned on this painting the next day. Not an uncommon occurence with watercolors. I didn't have the heart to post it. I'm hoping I can pull it back from the brink tommorrow. Challenge or oppurtunity?

Couple of comments from the peanut gallery. When she says that the window in the background is loosely based on a photo, she means the real window is not that freakin' huge. That bit of creative license adds a fantastical touch to the paintings that I really enjoy.

The pictures of the model were obviously not taken in front of the imaginary window, but the reason they work for a reference is that they were taken in front of glass doors, so the lighting is similar to what it would be if you took a picture in front of that non-existent window.
