Oh Ruth...this is beautiful! I love the way you have worked the colours into her hair....and the "pouty" expression you captured.

How long did this take you?

I am going to have to be more adventuresome with colour, when I see the kind of results you can get. I love it!:p

Thank you Kate! I was late getting to class, so I only had 4 or 5 20-minute sessions to get it done. She did have a pouty expression. I was going for the purple and gold complementary color scheme, and maybe should have put in more cool colors.

I am so overbooked these days, I have not even had time to read in here, much less attend a studio.
Thanks for holding up the "post your work every week" club.
I like seeing the fresh stuff. It is neat to post and neater to read, because it is totally immediate.
Eye to hand! Joyful colors and vibrant image.
Gotta go...drat

The vibrant colours are just wonderful.
I love how you have captured her expression.
The highlights on her face and the base of her neck really set it off.
