Painting progress - Day 46

Now the wings are in the mold setting, thought I had better try to finish the painting.

Had to do some test runs on the feet, and look at examples of other paintings/sketches, to try and get the shadows sitting just right.
I did consider a more flowy, short, petal type skirt, but decided on a more simple shape to balance out the wings.
Still have the bottom to go, I was thinking a rock/cliff, so she looks like shes about to go off it?!
Daughter suggested that could represent the moon, and I could do an earth in the background, maybe next time.
The background needs something though, contemplating ful moon but not won over yet.
