Embracing Monet's Sunset 8"x8" oil #331

I based this on a photo that I have already painted in acrylic on canvas, but I wanted to do one in oil on panel. I changed the background painting to Monet's "Sunset on the Seine at Lavacourt". He did a couple of these, in different seasons, as he did with many paintings. I liked the stripes on the woman's shirt and sweater and how the floor mimics the sunset. In the acrylic version all the colors were analogous which gave a whole different color harmony to the painting. I also did the acrylic with color washes.
