I have used only two colours for this painting, cobalt blue and light red plus white, as an experiment and enjoyed the process very much. My aim was to make her sweet face the focus of the painting making all other parts secondary and only play supporting roles, I am pleased with the feel of this piece.
We have loads of snow at the moment and it's quite dismal outside which made photographing of this piece a bit of a headache as the colour and value changes are so subtle.
I am always looking for new directions and subjects maybe I jump around too much, but I get excited by so many ideas that I want to try out I just can't keep to one theme or style for long. I guess that's the joy of being creative.
