"Lady in the Red Skirt"
Sometimes you see a place, a picture, a person in action and think "that's just perfect, I can look at that forever..". That is how I felt when I was browsing through Pinterest and came across this picture. The lady standing, the window behind her full of assorted objects, the hanging light fixtures, the glare of the skies reflection and the building across the street on the glass behind her, everything works. Naturally I had to paint this scene. I did however change certain aspects, I made the lady's waist thinner which made her posture look upright. I also flared her skirt a bit which highlights her better. I change the tiled pavement to line coming out towards the viewer to direct the gaze to the window. I completely enjoyed painting this composition and will be one of my all time favorites. This was done on a 8" x 10" canvas using Galleria acrylics.
