Pale Green Shirt - SOLD

7 x 5 collage and acrylic on board

SOLD
This went through many stages of color and value choices. When the colors of the photo and my collage paper choices conflict (which they always d0), I like to develop my palette based on the paper which leads to made up color which leads to a lot of that works, that doesn't work. Many times working from a black and white photo can be easier.

so expressive - it's as if her eyes are looking right at me and any minute I'm expecting her to speak!!

Reminds me a lot of Milt Kobiyashi's work. Great color.

Probably didn't spell that name correctly.....

Love the plaid in the background and how you carried those greens through the painting.
