I painted over the whole canvas on the left and started over. I finally got around to finding a better reference photo. I think I've come a long way since June. I hope Ellie will like it, too.
I'm not finished yet. :) I am taking artistic liberty here by changing what my daughter was wearing and not caring too much whether the painting looks EXACTLY like the photo or not. As long as someone who knows Ellie would come in and say, "Oh, that's Ellie!" I'll be happy. I'm so hard on myself and it really keeps me from soaring sometimes. I HAVE to let go and just paint what I think looks good. She's not finished but I'm liking the way she looks -- she looks like my Ellie :)
