I loved this profile. I hope I did her justice. Working the face in shadow is something I struggle with, adding greens and blues without loosing the freshness of the skin tones. For the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge I promised myself on days I have the time I would challenge myself with tough subjects.
oil on canvas 6" x 6"
I started on a ground of burnt sienna. This was painted in quick and loose working mostly whites and a mixture of alizarin leaving the darks showing through.
