Now that I have finished the most difficult part of the painting, I can continue with the rest of it in a more relaxed manner. I put some more layers of very pale tones on the skin and changed the angle of the right eye a little. For the mountains the light is falling from the right, so I worked on the girl keeping this in mind; the shadow on the neck is towards the left (tiny bit of pthalo blue and burnt sienna added to the skin tone mix). For the folds on the chunni, I wet the area and stroked in curves of a dark mix of the dress color following the contours of the body.  After the layers of the dress were completely dry, I brushed on a mix of silver and the pink mix and added some random strokes for the design on it. Some more random strokes of gold, silver, yellow green, pink and a dark brown for the jewellery.
