Here is the new face, painstakingly recreated in Corel Painter, using mostly the blender brushes and airbrush variants. I used the lasso tool to give the face a sharper outline against the dark blue of the sleeve. Also repainted the daffodil, giving it more definition.
I gave the skin a golden tone, in contrast with the cooler blues and grays of the dress and shawl. This area of the painting gets a more detailed treatment, whereas the background remains more impressionistic, as Waterhouse originally painted it. The next post is the whole painting with all my changes. Its important to know when to stop with such a project.
