This was fun to paint because Denise brought a wonderful costume and a beautiful piece of red fabric, which we used for the background.

More work is needed on the hands/gloves, which are just barely plausible right now. The background also needs work, to bring out the pattern. I'll probably add some other colors to relieve the red mush. And, of course, the chair needs to be refined into something that looks like a solid, sittable object with real contours.

All of that will be pretty easy. More challenging will be the necessary work on the model's right eye. Something seems slightly wrong with it, but I can't figure out what, exactly.

  1. Rebeca says: I was afraid of all that red, but you made it work with a spartan harmony (because there's actually few colors involved). There's no red mush. I would work on the background perhaps but not change the hue. I also looked at her right eye but didn't see anything to worry about. I do agree the gloves might use more definition (this was tricky for mine too), but the boa and the dress are magnificent. Finally, always love how you do those muscles on the face that give the body dimensionality.
