The final dancer
Here's a test image for the final belly dancer piece. Deirdre is, understandably, less confident (and more covered) than the others.
I took a different approach here. Since my source image had such nice contrast in the fabric, I played with and increased the black placement dramatically. I'm not sure how much will make it into the final - it will probably end up far lighter, just because that's the watercolor way - but it was fun to experiment. Besides, it wouldn't fit in with the others if I went overboard on the ink. I chose a red for the cloth to offset Deirdre's cool grays, but that could change upon request. In fact, through the magic of Photoshop, I can show some other options!
