At this stage of the painting, I am beginning to slow down in my application of pastel. The digital image is a tad small, so you may not be able to see the various changes from the previous stage. Here are a few things that I have done: 1) softened the background; 2) started to build more colors on the bandana; 3) added some reds on PeeWee as if it were a bit of seasoning; and 4) begun developing the rhythm of the water.
The eyes are so tempting to do at this point and I like painting the eyes, but even I must wait a little longer, as I want to have her face more developed before I paint her eyes. Patience!
I can feel the spirit of PeeWee, can you?
...to be continued.

Just as my brother-in-law Dave expected,this stirs emotions and memories and when I saw this,my eyes and throat filled with tears. What a gift this is!
Thank you for the wonderful comment! Knowing that I am touching your heart, keeps me painting.
