I'm not keen on the blues pose still but I love the dove grey blue and gold of the dress its inspired by so I think it's worth pushing on with it.

i much prefer the gold feather dress as the gold and white colours are challenging to capture and I just know the embellishments I plan to enhance this with will really complete it. I also prefer the way I've drawn and painted the model.

I then embellished with various gold and nude glitters and gold rhinestones.
