Cartouches on the right of Cleopatra
Two and a half hours went into the two cartouches on the right of Cleopatra. After that I went to see the news and rest my eyes (and shoulders).
When I came back I noticed I´ll probably need to work on the cartouches a bit more, but I´ll leave them for now. Once the underpainting is all done, I´ll then redefine the light and shadows of the whole painting to make it more unified.
The cartouche is an "oval" or an oblong enclosure that surrounds the names of rulers in hieroglyphic texts..
