Hei art lovers, I am representing the two steps example of first part of 2nd painting on the left and finished blended on the right.
The first step at the beginning of the 2nd painting is reloading the surface with fresh colours. Next comes the meditation where you start playing and blending. As the face is turned away all the edges and details are soft. Notice that the ear and hair were not second painted.
I wish you a pleasant Sunday
