Hours of work in a different light

The painting photographed in different light, changes the colors and shows the structure. The background is now darker, I have done quite a bit of subtle work on the face – around the nose, the mouth, the eyes, etc. And I applied a real Anasazi potsherd as a brooch. In this light the wood grain can clearly be seen in the face. I am not interested in photographic perfection, I want it to be a painting…
