  1. Great color - I must ask which came first - the color choice or the composition?

  2. Thanks, Katherine. The composition came first. When I started putting color down, I was influenced by a red robe the model wore when not posing; I thought it was great against her skin.

  6. She appears to be defying gravity. Nice line work on the back side of the figure.

    I'd like to see this put in a gilded frame and placed in Jayne Mansfield's bedroom

  7. She doesn't seem involved in a red activity, yet red seems a good color for her. I appreciate your explanation of how you arrived at the color.

  9. I'm listening to Fauré as write this but I prolly should be listening to Pictures at an Exhibition Instead.

    I like this woman in red with her round hips and belly and her flesh tone against the warm red.

  11. PA, "Jayne Mansfield's bedroom in a gilded frame." Sounds like a game of Clue. Probably what this ought to be called.

    Thanks, Banjo. You know I love the questions.
