Done in oil and knife, had trouble with this one, not sure why but my knife was not blending properly and could not get brush at the right size, but seems ok now

Great colors Pat.

I think that when one is doing a patterned garment that the colors of the flowers in this case are moving the same way that the folds of the fabric are moving. So that they would receive the shadow the same way and they would bend along the same path. That is to say it's not a small feat to take on something like this. It's actually like someone in a music competition selecting a piece to show that they have a handle on all the subtleties that go along with that original. In this case it's the photo as the source, and, assuming you are going for a straight painting, as it seems that you are, then you can attend to those bits accordingly.

This is a piece to show the artist's virtuosity. Consequently, it's also a very good one to learn how to make complex things work together and stay in place.

To me the overall impact is good. The pattern/ornament/flower jazz on the garment is taking mildly anarchistic. Those flowers are big show offs and not team players. Kind of like the first day of spring training for the new football team. There's a lot of raw talent, but they need to learn to work together.

So grab your clip board and whistle, put on your sweat shirt and cap, and start bellowing. . . in the demure way of the kimono. But be a kimono dragon. . .

Have I pulled in enough analogies? Hahaha.

Very nice image/pose. Gorgeous lady. Like I say, great colors. Lots of potential.
