"Girl in Blue"

7"x 5" oil on canvas panel, $100

Painting people takes a lot longer than still life for me. I'm always experimenting with combinations of colors to get the best skin tones. I usually rely on red/green combinations but this one is blue/orange. This piece is a nod to two of my favorite painters, Malcom Liepke and Milt Kobayashi...painters of those luscious lips.
