painting progress

Monday was a holiday, I spent 7 blissful hours painting. Here is a mostly finished new painting. One thing I was trying for was more of a vibrant pink shirt which I was unable to accomplish with the paints colors that I use. I use just the main colors red, blue, white, etc. then mix the colors that I want, but it is very hard to get some colors, vibrant pink is one of them(greens are hard too). One thing that was interesting was really pushing the bright reflected red under her chin.

I recall having the same problem with a painting a while back. You should invest in some "Permanent Rose" and "Viridian" for those cold "red $ green" moments! Excellent work by the way. I saw some of your work at the Utah County Art Gallery for the BYU alumni show.

waow! this is fantastic, Dave! her head is so nicely detailed and that red reflection under her chin is simply brilliant, so nicely done that if you didn't mentioned it, i did not noticed it, it looks so natural
bravo!
