Mrs Palmer, again

Mrs Potter Palmer 4
oil study
8" x 6"
Another exercise I might use for my workshop next month: creating a scene from reference and imagination using a monochromatic color scheme.  This one was burnt sienna and white which has the effect of an old photograph.  Here Mrs Potter Palmer looks out on Little Sarasota Bay about one hundred years ago at her winter home on Spanish Point.  Maybe, it's Valentine's Day and she's waiting for her husband to arrive on his sleek, white sailing yacht.
