Secret Garden Update

BIG BIG thanks to those who made wonderful suggestions on her wink and pose. Cindy Ribet altered her face in Photoshop to show what a lowered brow and thinner eye would do and it was the perfect expression! I slept on it and last night at 3 am I got up and made a zipper stitch tuck in her closed eyelid. This pulled the eyebrow down, added a little dimension to the eyelid, and also pulled the corner of the mouth a little more. I really like the results. May add a bit more shading on the lines to add more depth to the wrinkles and fullness to the cheek. Thanks too to Bonnie about the head tilt. Now I deciding whether to add a tie on the hat to under her chin. She will let me know when I give it a test drive. Here is the pic from Cindy and following is the altered head. Thanks again for the suggestions.
