I could have kept going - but I am ready to move on to the next session of Studying under the Masters. I only noticed the extra white spot on her hat after I had edited the picture - so it's going to stay. I have really learned so much through painting this lady - I am not completely satisfied but am pleased at my progress. This has been a wonderful, amazing and fun experience. Because Matisse used so much pattern in his paintings - I added the dots to her dress. But because I was lazy at that point, I used some sequin waste as a stencil.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday (here). It's a wonderful place to "window shop" and see what all the artists have produced. I give much thanks to Eva and Kristin for being so faithful in hosting this site. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful and art filled day!
Couldn't help myself - I had to fix the white spot on the hat - on the left. On the right is a shot I took on an incandescent light setting (accidentally) but I kind of liked how it turned out!
