Zen Moment at the Salon

I've been home with a cold for the past few days and it has paid off as far as painting goes.  That's about the only good thing I can say about it!  This painting was a little difficult.  My main focus was the lighting on the gown (or cover up) that the woman was wearing, as well as all of the folds.  I wound up experimenting with color and shapes, and it seems to have worked.  Another difficult area was the angle of the head.  The way it tilted back was a challenge.  I call the painting a Zen moment because having one's hair washed is always like a massage.  It never lasts long enough!
