P.S., as I forgot to mention this earlier in my post, Carol's portrait was the first where I included with my egg tempera a pigment powder that I bought this year which is made from real lapis lazuli (ground from the actual gemstone). It is mixed in with the other blues in the sky and water, and it's subtle, but the pigment seems to have a slight shimmer to it. It was fun to try it out in a painting with lots of blue.
