Portrait Study

This is the latest from our portrait study group. It was done with cadmium red, yellow ochre, perylene black and white. It is a modern version of one of the palettes used by Anders Zorn. I was pleased to find that perylene black makes a much nicer green than ivory black. You may be able to see the green in her eyes. I probably never would have known had I not forgotten my black and had to borrow some. Thanks Patricia!!! I have much yet to learn about painting portraits but am enjoying the process. It is very nice having your company on the journey!
