Green taffeta dress 11"x14" oil

This green dress is woven with two colors, the warp is violet blue and the weft is lime green so the fabric takes on an iridescent quality and changes color as she moves.   It makes for fun painting, thank goodness she was holding still!  I have tried to keep the focus on the head and shoulders and trying to keep the rest loose and move the colors around the canvas.  
The three hour session goes way too fast and with the model breaks it is more like two and a half hours.   I had to keep from panicking at the end.
