Leaving My Moroccan Girl For Now

I have worked on greater detail on my little Moroccan girl, but I need to lay her aside for a few days and then look at her with fresh eyes. The watercolor needs to rest as well. I know there needs to be a bit more contrast of darks and lights.

I am now beginning a drawing of a place up in the Atlas mountains where a co-op of divorced and widowed women banded together to make a living. No social security up in those mountains. The women were making oil from a special nut. They were working on the dirt floor with tarps and cloths about them. Tomorrow, I will begin painting their story.
