Weaving Finished

Today I finished weaving my portrait of my daughter.  It was my first piece using Helena Hernmarck's weaving technique.  Overall, I am pleased with the outcome.

I do have some tweaking to do after it comes off the loom.  There are some problems with the chin and the right side of the cheek. I can fix those with a bit of yarn and a tapestry needle, but otherwise, I will leave it alone.  A detail of the piece is shown below.

I still have quite a bit of warp left on the loom, so I am thinking of weaving my first color piece using this technique.  I bought some yarn for it, but I need to do adjust the warp a bit  and rewind the weaving onto the cloth beam.
