Once again this piece has gone through several changes but then with me, what else is new! I began this painting thinking "exotic" and I painted her face half and half with shades of blue and gold. Looked okay but just wasn't doin' it for me. So out came the gesso and she disappeared.
She looks a little sad or mad or just plain not happy but that's who she is and that's what I went with. Every face isn't beautiful and everyone isn't always happy.
(I just noticed her mouth is messed up on the right side of the picture. I'll have to repair her lipstick!)
