Super Sad continues 2

I worked again live from the model yesterday morning on the painting and then more on the background after she left. Now I'll work from photos I took and develop the background more until the model returns next week.

The background is in flux and though it will have a dark stormy sky, I'm not sure if I will add anything else in yet, I'll wait and see how I feel as this goes. I'm trying something a bit different here as I am letting this painting grow organically, I intentionally cropped the legs to give the figure a weird heaviness, yet also a incomplete and powerless feeling.

coming along nicely. When I first saw the original in prog pic, I thought she had a pumpkin on her head and was wondering what that had to do with 'super sad' sorry ;)
