I like this painting very much, it has emotion and energy. Her hair was a challenge but it turned out alright. I think I need to push the difference between the values in the lights. When I am painting, the shifts seems strong enough, but later on, they don't. I had a blue filter over the light for this painting, and I think it helped. The artificial light can be so warm.
I though it might be interesting for anyone following this blog to see some of the artists painting along with me and the studio, Repenning Fine Arts, where this series is being painted. This is most of the Monday night group (missing is Nancy Mullins).
