Portrait of Italian woman, work in progress

A woman from Italian ballet in Georgia. Oil on canvas, 40 cm x 60 cm. I did another experiment with green underpainting. Work in progress!

Re: Portrait of Italian woman, work in progress

The earrings are a little distracting, they do not fall with gravity.

I think the earring is resting on her hair or shoulder.
Alex, I like this so far. Looking forward to more.

Re: Portrait of Italian woman, work in progress

Well you put greens and purples together, my favorite combo. Looking good so far. She is pretty, and compliments the background. Mountains on left are lovely.

Re: Portrait of Italian woman, work in progress

Thank you all! I want to let it dry a little for better working properties. To make paint less soluble. And then I will try to continue work with hairs, background landscape and earrings. I will try to check different colors for her earrings.

Re: Portrait of Italian woman, work in progress

I think only her left earring shows, and that is a spire over her right shoulder, yes? Colors are great!

Re: Portrait of Italian woman, work in progress

Nice, Gigalot! I love the renaissance-esque panoramic background. The colors are lovely.

I would be extra curious to see your green underpainting. Do you have any pictures of it?

I do not have intermediate picture of this work, but you can check my another work "Patrician woman" done with the same technique, using green underpainting:

you can also check this almost finished work:

Re: Portrait of Italian woman, work in progress

A very pleasing view of a young woman - I don't mind the ear-ring and the eyes are
nicely done. I like it so far...
