Second Week in Orange, Now Red




Second Week In Orange, Now Red

This morning was the second week “R” modeled in the same pose for the Independent Painters Group. I painted her from a different vantage point in the studio, in acrylics this time.
My first pass on her orange dress was with red paint. I never did get back before the pose ended to add the orange highlights. Last weeks watercolor attempt is a much better painting of her dress color.
16”x 20” acrylic on canvas pad

  1. I like the color palette in this, but I would have liked to see more depth and shadow in the dress. This woman looks my aunt Joanne when she was a young woman. I've never seen a painting that reminds me of someone I once knew!

    Thanks for your kind comments, btw. And for answering my carefully wrought questions:)

    1. The woman in this weeks painting doesn’t look a lot like “R”. I was closer last week in the watercolor version. If this looks like a younger version of your aunt, I am pleased.
      Thank you

    2. It does, and I miss her greatly. This made me happy even though it can't be her. It seems as if it could be! I hear we all have a twin. Perhaps this is so.

    1. I agree. Last week does look more washed out.

  4. I so love the brilliance of this one, Anthony!
    Such vibrant colours...not only her dress, but all those wonderful background hues too.
    It all works perfectly together...this is absolutely mesmerizing...:)

    1. The background was sort of last minute, more desperation than brilliance.. I was running out of time.
