Beach Lady

#12 of 30/30.  Worked on two at once this morning, #12 and #13.  Mixed paint for both at same time.  Experimented with minimalism, used as few strokes as possible, simplified values and colors.  Fought the urge to tighten up and add more details.  It's amazing how little can tell the story.

First layer of Beach Lady, made a lot of changes.
Second layer of Beach Lady and second layer of #13 which I'll report on in next post.
