So here I couldn't decide between 3 different versions of the picture.  Above, the way I would usually do it, below, a rougher, darker and more painterly version, and at the bottom, a softer, slightly gauzy version.  Do you have a preference?  Does it even make a difference?  When you're making a picture you can have strong feelings about details others barely notice.
