Lady in Red


This painting was done in a workshop I attended last month. The assignment was to work with a complementary palette (red and green) but I also was playing with the juxtaposition of thinly painted and more thickly painted areas. I've always liked paintings that were part drawing, part painting (Toulouse Lautrec comes to mind) and this has some of that flavor.

This weeks challenge on DPW: Paint a light bulb. I decided to pair the bulb with a favorite little black vase that not only is "bulbous" itself but helps to create some more interesting shapes.
