Arches CP 300 gsm, 14" x 10".

a portrait of the tomboy side of siena, done in a rough and schematic style. she was posing in different tops.

i was working on this painting at the same time as works posted november 3 and 9, and this one got the least attention. the flesh mixture is left over from the "venus" painting posted above.

i painted all objects in local color, then draped them with a tinting layer of prussian blue to "cut out" the figure from the background. the light is warm without a reddish tint, and there is no blue or yellow paint in the flesh tones; again, everything is in flavors of red and green.
