Our model today was Sara and I thought she looked especially wonderful in this red sequined dress. This is actually the second time painting on this one. The first session was on 6/5/09 and that is pictured on this blog for that day. So it is actually not a one day painting but it is what I painted and finished today. I realize why the reds were coming out so bright on my previous pictures. It was because I shot then on the vivid setting with the camera. This was taken on the normal setting. The red was a little bit more bright than this but it does show values better.
It is painted on a 9" x 12" oil primed linen panel, it took 6 hours and the price reflects this. It is going to be beautiful when it is framed and would be a complement in any room. Lets see.....which room am I going to put it in. I did painting of a a different model in this dress and it sold quickly. A lot of people wanted it but it went to the first person that gave me money $400 (it was larger).
