Elwing painting

"For Ulmo bore up Elwing out of the waves, and he gave her the likeness of a great white bird, and upon her breast there shone as a star the Silmaril, as she flew over the water to seek Eärendil her beloved."

I went to a local art event - Drawn to the Valley, which is a thing where lots of local artists open up their studios and there's a trail to go and visit them - yesterday. The art was of course of varying quality and style, but some of it was excellent (I'm kind of glad that some of it was also terrible.)  It made me think I should finish this painting I started a while ago.

It looks finished to me. Is it? If not, what were you planning to do to finish it? It seems to really capture the transformation.

Now I've stared at it for a bit, I'm wondering about a few more waves and maybe doing something to emphasize the Silmaril(s) a bit more about her neck. And maybe more shading on her lower body.

But there is of course a significant chance of Ballsing Things Up By Not Knowing Where To Stop. :-D
