oil on canvas 12x14 approx.
I was going to wait a day but why laugh tomorrow when you can laugh today. WIP or perhaps one to be painted over completely! The colours are extremely ugly.

Mad Rita
Watch Out!
Watch Out!
Mad Rita's about.
She’s after your fingers and toes.
She’ll spend all your money
Like soft juicy honey
And then punch you right in the nose!

That sounds just as ugly as this painting is. LOL

there no ugly colors....

sometimes when one stands alone or in a poorly lit space, the effect may not be as attractive...and even a dress that some consider unflattering can be improved with red shoes or a scarlet scarf.

methinks the lady needs garnets, rubies, and reds of rich love and passion

Believe me Greggo, the colours are so hideous no type of embellishment is going to make it pretty.

Garnets, rubies and passion...I say. What and end up like Mad Rita!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what you stand in front of, or near, can 'color' the senses.
'tis true of women, men, cars, and whatever else.

Rita on a red wall will be perceived as a different woman than Rita on beige.

and "Rita on Red" is so alliterative

now go paint the wall

Greggo, I will put her on my carpet on the stairs tomorrow and take a photo for you but I have my doubts. She is seriously a harlot and I can't believe that even with a back drop of red rubies she is going to look any better but I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt and I will be posting it for you.

Here she goes Birdhs. Yes the red did make her shine but there is just no getting away from it - She is utterly disgusting. In real life she is much, much greener than yellow - not my favourite colour. When she is dry I will make her more yellow. I couldn't possibly paint over it because she was a moment in time...........

I am not at my laptop, this netbook has no photoshop on it.
I will run your painting thru PSE8 with the invert filter.

Sometmes touching with the invert colors will help my paintings, once in a while I also phot them and play with the saturation and/or hue tool to see how they might look.

got photoshop? or one of the others?
great tools for artists to get ideas from

Well Birdhs, I inverted the colours and it was most interesting thanks for that. She is now a virgin bride adorned with glistening white feathers, with claws still outstretched and looking as mad as ever. He is also wearing white but he is now blue in the face and he is still scratching his head! She is still definitely out to get him.........

Mad Rita transformed to Lovely Rita!
In the cab she looks much older
And the bag across her shoulder
Hey, Nikki, no previous reference to McCartney...

As the pendulum swings from anger to joy
All I can do is smile
Heavy dark wings can only deploy
When sadness is back in style

Hairy, thank you for that you have just made a sequel:
The Return of Mad Rita
Next, she will be looking for a pound of flesh
whilst beating him to a pulp.
Perhaps I had better leave his face green after all.
