Hairy Spring Girl

I have a print of this  painting entitled "Spring" by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema hanging in my bathroom. I know every detail very well because I stare at it every morning while I blow dry my hair. 
And I have a lot of hair.

There's a whole lot of stuff going on in this painting, but my eye often fixates on this particular figure. I think it's because she, too, has a whole lot of hair.

As a warm-up yesterday, I decided to do a quick study of this small portion of the painting, and give Hairy Spring Girl the spotlight that I feel she deserves.

Here's a few shots of the process as well.
