Model Merger

I started on a painting of this model in front of a Japanese gate last week.  Today, she was posing in a garden in the neighborhood of Washington Grove.  Rather than start a completely new painting, I took the gate painting and today's pose and merged them.  Once I'd done that, I realized that the lighting on the gate and the lighting on the model were out of sync.  Also, the charming tilt of her head in real life looks a bit odd on the canvas, so she will probably need a bit of posture improvement as well.  This is a work in progress.
