The next step was to add another wash to the background darkening it even more. After drying I see that there is too much of a distinct line above her head so that will need fixing in the next steps. I added a wash over her whole sweater but it is far from finished as a final colour. I started laying in a dark wash over her hair and a first wash of skin tone. The photo didn't take an accurate picture of the skin or hair. As the skin tones get darker it will be easier to show an accurate photo.
