right in the middle...
right over her head!!!
I tried to fix/hide it by gessoing thinly all over the crack and around the white areas in the background. But the crack still looked like it was there when the gesso dried.
So I used white artist tape and taped it just at the crack and then painted the line to hide the tape (which it doesn't do well but I had to try something).
I wanted to mail this to Teresa for her birthday - her birthday is tomorrow and it has to go to Spain - so that isn't going to happen. Now I'm afraid if I don't wrap it in a dozen layers of paper and bubble wrap and stuff, it will get there in 2 pieces!
Such is life.
I have begun another, same pose, same photo reference...this time on 140# watercolor paper. Not sure it will get done, though, as lethargic as I am - maybe I should do a quick watercolor sketch on small paper?!?
