Wow, this portrait was a real challenge and I am happy to have time to study and practice the work of Robert Henri. Look at his masterful brush strokes, especially the important details of the eyes. Amazing.
I have not painted much with red, so mixing those variations of red was fun and different. Also, I liked trying to suggest the hands and object in her lap, it is painted quite loosely and so I tried to do the same. Gah! Hard!
Here is my version.
Thanks for taking a look. Wishing you lots of painting mojo today, keep that brush wet!
Soli Deo Gloria
