Trish - X post contemporary & WOYE

Back to more my style. This is another addition to my Red Hat series. (never knew I had a red hat fetish)
I am calling my lady friend finished. I think it is done and I am happy with it. However, it almost looks like an advertizing poster or clip art. Not my intent. Does it need more BG graphics, color or ???, or leave it alone.
I wanted minimal color, etc. This is a gift, a contemporary portrait of the receiver. (victim) I cheated with the hat, as I can't do facial portraits. I did capture her nose and lips.
Did some airbrush work here. I need a lot of practice. It's an interesting and fun paint tool, but there are adjustments, adjustments, adjustments, adjustments, adjustments, and adjustments, and then you can also adjust the .....

C & C always welcome.
"Trish",24"x36", canvas panel, acrylics

Wow this is great, Eric. Very graphic. I would say the background is fine for this. The red and white line really pop out.

Nicely done, very classy. First thing I thought of was Mrs. Minerva from English Home magazine.

This is beautiful. Love the strong colors. Red, black and white. Cannot get better.
