A Portrait for Today

"Dressed in Red"
9" x 12" pastel on Canson paper
If you are like me, you gather resource material from far and wide. Some photos leave you thinking about what could be...this one was the case. It was a fairly obscure- non-descript black and white photo. I imagined it in color - I love red!

Number 12 of 15 in the month of January.

Love this red! This portrait has so much energy, I can feel the wind blowing thru her hair.

By the way, I finally put up studio pictures on my blog, your welcome to come and visit anytime. Not sure it will show what all I did, if there is a next time I'll take before photos.

Thanks Victoria! I will check your blog and get inspired for sure! Be sure to check out Charley Parker's Lines and Colors on January 9th. You will be surprised!
