Had a great photo of my granddaughter caught unawares wearing this great, floppy, blue-weave hat. I loved the pose and wanted to challenge myself with the hat. Well, I don't know what I was thinking because trying to get hyper-realism on that hat - may not be impossible for some - but it was definitely the hardest thing I've ever attempted to do and I am definitely not happy with it. In fact there are other things I am not happy with, but I've stressed over it enough for now and letting you all see it. I feel it is unfinished, but I'm posting it here and letting it rest on my easel, (as it has for the past two months) until I can see if I want to tackle it further.
