The latest work on the project has been to refine the details in the painting. I have worked on the pearls, the folds in the costumes, hands and faces. I used Holbein’s drawings of some of the people in this group to help me refine the portraits.
The still life objects and animals have also been refined.
I have only the two indistinct portraits in the background to finalize. Once that is done, I can put the stamp of ‘completed’ on this stage and move into color.
