Painting With The Masters - Robert Henri

 Rosaleen by Robert Henri

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!
