I think I am getting somewhere with this now. If the drawing is fairly sound adding some paint and seeing where I can take it is good fun. Ideally it would be done soon after the session when memories of the model are still fresh but regardless its a good way of checking ones information gathering and I quite like to get creative with the colours. I painted on the reverse side of this and then edited the graphite on the front, mainly removal. I turned her into Snow White, something about the stillness of the pose so a quick change from blonde to brunette, et voila!
