Painting Hands

I feel like I'm getting there with Sofia's portrait, though I have had to take a short intermission for a unique project/commission that has taken me away from my basement studio and into a paint shop.( I'll tell you more about that - soon.)
Her hands were challenging for me because of the way she was holding them, one resting inside the other with the light focusing more on one than the other.
And now, on to the stairs.The complicated pattern of the carpet on these stairs was not easy to paint in Julia's portrait so I cannot imagine them getting any easier this time around. Perhaps I'll paint tonight when I get home.
