"Redhead in Green"

8"x 6" oil on canvas

This was actually yesterday's painting, just didn't have time to post it last night. It's loosely based on a photo of me. Really, only the hair is close. I have red(ish) hair and that probably explains why I like to paint so many red heads. Whatever color, I think it's hard to paint hair without making it look lumpy.

I particularly like the hand in this painting. And the brush strokes and tonal changes.
