I finished most of these before I painted Melisande’s face. I wanted a natural soft style for her, with lots of layers and colors in harmony with nature and the elements, timeless and feminine. Harace’s sculpt has something modest and quiet about it, that’s at least how I see her. Depending on the face-up she can look sorrowful, haughty or regal, or just as if she was lost in thought. A very subtle and beautiful face, but not a very open one. Layers revealing layers seemed to be right for her.
Unfortunately the light is so bad at this time of year that the details of her face up don’t really show, but I hope at least the details of her clothes are visible.
