PORTRAITS AGAIN

I was taken by the elegance of this woman. She was having lunch with a friend and oblivious to my taking her picture. I've changed her features just enough that it really doesn't look exactly like her.

This portrait is painted with much more control than the one I posted on Oct. 22. I find it much easier to paint like this than to paint loosely the way the other one was painted.

This is a wonderful portrait! I love the way her dark skin glows, and all the colors you found in her hair. I also like the way the dark rectangle makes a perfect backdrop via the cruciform design.

A gorgeous painting, Sandy, and having seen it in person I know it's even better IRL :)
