Red Blouse

My latest portrait is titled Red Blouse. What I so love about this painting is that the red from the blouse has reflected onto my model (Cheryl) not only under her chin, but also the lower lip, the nose and eyes. This was so appealing to me and I am very happy with the results.

  1. I know this is showing a process but was trying to decide which I preferred. I love the immediacy of the first ‘sketch’ but I really liked the middle one before you locked down her personality. This is very nice, thanks for sharing your process.


    1. Thank you dunelight! I do try to enjoy the process no matter what it is. I am so glad that you like this. She sure does have personality and it was a joy to capture that. πŸ™‚
