Here is the start of the new painting of the girl and her doll Sunshine (Alexia still has her little Sunshine to this day...)
I made a new drawing of the girl on tracing paper to fit the body size and position, whited out the old drawing, corrected the background and started a new picture of the girl.
I start working on the likeness to Alexia (more than 20 years ago) and realise the girl needs to be redone!!!
I start work on darkening areas on the tiger to complement the light source.
The Tiger's stripes have been added.
