This is a piece I'm working on for my color theory class. The assignment was to take a master work and rethink it using arbitrary color. I chose Sargent's Lady Agnew. Her face is a little off so any suggestions regarding how to make her less ugly would be greatly appreciated. :)

Acrylic on canvas 16x20

Thanks,
Tia

missed this one somehow
how's it going?
the yellow 'glow' about the pic - is that flash? or your arbitrary color choice?

la - the colors in the photo are pretty true to life. Unfortunately I haven't had time to work on it because I've been working on my final project for color theory... a 2 ft x 4 ft floral piece. It will be taking up my life until it's due next week!

Well, it can't be too far off as I recognized her as Lady Agnew. I like your color choices! Makes her look much less pristine and a bit more mysterious.
