Contemporary colorful paintings of fun and figures.

I like this painting because of the composition. The dark shadows are like an object in itself. I mixed purple with a very dark blue to get this color, but on the monitor it looks black. When I showed my husband, he commented, "Oh it's your mom." He is right, it does look like her, but she wasn't my model. It was from a drawing class I taught. I photographed this lady from a balcony, looking below to her. I am not completely satisfied with the skin quality or tones, so I will probably go back in and rework them when it dries a bit. I am scrambling to get everything together for a big art fair this weekend, so I my not paint every day, or like this one, it might be a bit rushed.
