Baby Bella Portrait - Work in Progress 1

When I paint commission portraits I'm in the habit of emailing 'work in progress' images to the client at each stage, accompanied by an appropriate message.
This image shows the very first stage of little Bella's painting, where I've loosely washed in what goes where, just to get things started. It also qualifies for a 'please don't panic' message for Mum :) Scary yuck coloured backgrounds and 'dead' eyes are normal at this stage, but she most likely doesn't know that ;)
