siena, red dress on

Arches CP 300 gsm, 14" x 10".

whenever siena comes over i make clothing requests. the red dress she brought on her own, said she found it in a bargain sale bin.

i was photographing her against a blue background sheet, and just stepped back to take in the edges.

i painted her arms and bare leg to show her strength, and gave her a confident expression.

i painted the skin tone as close to golden as i could get without going into yellow. the hair i can't explain.
