I fancied doing something a bit simpler than the last one and felt like painting something all about red, a colour that I love in paintings. I then remembered that my regular model Naomi Wood has red hair so I decided to do a portrait of her entirely in reds and oranges. It is exceedingly difficult to photograph this picture but this is as good as I can get it until the paint dries when I can scan it. The hair was painted mainly with glazes of Permanent Orange so that it visually stood out from the red background - by putting the figure against the sky one gets a more iconic image which I like in paintings. I am thinking of exhibiting this at the upcoming Illuxcon.....Oil on linen 22" x 15". There is a step-by-step progress through this painting in previous posts on this blog.
