View Full Version : Carol with Flowers

The outfit bespeaks her personality.
Yes, I know she's floating, but she floats thru life.
I posted her on the Open Critique forum and got some good ideas. Since she's carrying flowers and she's a bit of a wildflower herself, I'm posting her here too.

I love, love, LOVE this though I think I might have placed her more to the left of center.

I like it very much also. Good colors and design. Love the stockings. What surface is it painted on?

Does she have red hair like in your painting IRL? My middle daughter is a red head and you could describe her the same way you've done Carol!

I really like this painting, the striped stockings and the red hair make it for me. :thumbsup:

Thank you Gayle, Jeanette and Sylvia
Her hair is auburn and the surface is illustration board. Yes, I think she could be more to the left, now that you mention it Gayle

I thought that was me :eek: :lol: but I don't own stockings like that.

Lovely. It's very moody

Thanks, this one was fun to paint. Carol, the stockings are great, but the hat did it for me!

What a happy painting :clap:
When I look at it first time I thought it was a pastel drawing, it looks so soft.
I love her hat!
