Lady ( in red )

Ah the memories that song brings back ! Those innocent days.

Tried to limit myself to one colour for this one, seeing how much depth I could get.

Alizarin crimson ( which I alway think should be the name of a Russian Cosmonaut. )

A friend has pointed out her armpit area should probably be darker, and he is right. But it was tricky to maintain the degrees of shade when the brush got to the point where it could only either put the paint on or take it off, but not layer it.

Maybe, now it has had a few days to dry it might take to a little additional shading.

Might try that.

  1. I wish she was dancing with me. The crimson adds a startling vitality to what is a gentle pose.
