The Painted Lady

I really like the way this one turned out.  The female has always been a problem for me but this little lady just might set the example that I will follow in the future.  A number of you have ask that I do a video on her but I haven't reached the confidence level necessary for that yet.  Someday.
The eyes are just a black dot of paint with a little white added on each side.  I also outlined the upper eyelid with a very thin black line and the directly above that a darker shade of flesh.
Anyway, I hope you like her.  More photos in the Gallery and your comments are appreciated.


  1. I've always been partial to redheads and this one is certainly no exception. The Mayor sure lucked out and got a real "sweetie" with this one. Great painting! Really good detail on the feathers. Thanks for the show.


  2. Absolutely Outstanding!!!


  3. Yep, I was right. She too good for that old coot!

    She is a little older than I thought that she would be. He seems like the type that would rob the cradle:-)

    You really captured the period dress. It *had* to be purple.

    Great job!
