    Not finished I think, but how to finish it I don't know yet..
    Thanks for sharing your thinking and your process, it is wonderful to see how you are adding drama and an expression, layer by layer. I hope you don't take my suggestion too readily and so upset your own feeling of balance and your instinct, as I'd hate to spoil your creation, but since you asked for suggestions, I'd say I'd like something in-between the white and the newer blacker one, as I find the black maybe a touch heavier, and therefore sadder. Perhaps a slightly less symmetrical crop, too? I cannot wait to see the next versions.

    Thank you so much for letting us see the evolving work of art. This has been, and remains, fascinating.

    First: Thanks all - it is nice to get feedback!!

    Rafal I understand your suggestion, but I am afraid it is too late..

    I have just made this even darker!... (will post an image tomorrow).
    I thought here she started to look like an old witch from a Harry Potter story... (I think the bottom half of the image had this effect..) - I am thinking about adding at least some warmth to the background as well...

    I have also thought about cropping.. and I might do that...

    To top it all, I have now begun my third version...

    stay tuned..

    The "B/W" version isn't B/W anymore... I added some warmth - both in the background as well as in her clothes...

    I also decided to make the scarf less dominant..

    Finally I tilted it a little to the right..

    All in all better I think..

    The third version is also now almost completed - I'll upload an image tomorrow..

    Dante's inferno. Acid trip. You don't mess around.

    Thanks for sharing. I like this version very much, though still not 100% sure about the whiter strip at the very bottom, and bottom-right, as it draws my eye away from the figure. However, this is probably just me...

    UPDATE

    well - I have now written our Minister (Secretary) of Culture and sent her the three images to jugde...

    That is nerve wrecking...

    I made some final images - SO hard to make them look right on a screen... and added a kind of framing to show how I picture them...

    I wonder how she will react... Maybe she'll die of a culture shock?

    We'll see....
