without much thought i threw a botanical into the mix of portrait paintings, partly as a relief from discouraging results and also just to work with green for a while.
a local florist delivers fresh flowers to our house each week. normally my wife jan arranges them in the main residence, but since she has been out of town i have them delivered to the studio. actually the couch behind the flowers is very dark brown, but i left it yellow, a mixture of pyrrole red and green gold, just because it was a nice color.
this painting deserves to be done larger and also with less stiffness. but i am feeling a bit stiff lately.
