    I'm working on a similar pose at the moment too Pat. Lovely chunky style with a really unusual mix of colours. Well Painted!

    Pat very expressive color and brush work, very well done and quite a departure from the smooth style of your "Goya" work..

    Well done, dear Pat! I like it and she has a quite classical pose.

    Do ya remember the old mood rings and how they work? Color of the ring indicates the mood?

    Well, were I looking at her from the given vantage point, I would have to say that this lass is complex and maybe a little conflicted. She is filled with mixed emotions right about now if I know my mood colors. . .

    And I can thank we can attribute this to the viewer's stupid cold hands. . .I just know it. But hey, they say it means a warm heart. . . What? Nothing? Um. . . Stupid Winter. . . Time to hibernate I suppose.

    However. . . on the other hand (the warmer one) as a painting it's very intriguing Pat. I like your bold interest in pushing color. It's a way I like to go to get a rich and lively painting. As we spoke some time back, Pino was really great with this kind of thing, being my favorite non-fantasy paperback illustrator primarily because he could really use color as well as paint women. I'm wondering if you were looking at his work as inspiration for this. The nice thing I like about your work is that it is a painting first and foremost. You're approaching the canvas like an artist -- looking at shapes and colors and so forth in addition to the primary subjective departure point of the representation of a female's back and fabric and all the literal stuff.

    I think that over time you're going to arrive at the subtlety that comes from lots of painting mileage and familiarity with where to place color and where to broad scrub brushstroke it as a beginning point and where then to tighten up certain elements to make it suddenly come together like a magic trick (if you're doing Pino as suggested by your color work here. If Boucher, then it will be more controlled which was the style of the era he painted in).

    This is a very cool. . .er warm. . .er hot. . .um, mood ringy painting.
