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.
