Bubbly Charm

Red Hat Lady
10" x 8"
Sketch on green-toned canvas using a limited palette of cad red, cad yellow pale, ultramarine blue and white.  But got carried away with the feathers and used a bit of magenta and turquoise.  Fun!  Rita was a great  model but just too darn happy... kept breaking into a smile.  Face crinkled with laughter,  eyes sparkled,  hat feathers shook.  Many artists were able to capture her bubbly charm at the Punta Gorda Portrait Studio last Thursday morning.
