Woman In Red Glasses, Reading; Woman In Red Glasses And Blue Scarf
Woman In Red Glasses, Reading is oil pastel on 11"x14" canvas.
Woman In Red Glasses And Blue Scarf is oil pastel on approximately 12"x20" card.
The model, a dancer, was reading an art theory book, courtesy of one of the painters. Her glasses, highly decorative, are purely a fashion accessory.
In the background you can see a white swan and several black coots. Coots are funny ducklike creatures with chicken feet and loud querulous voices. Don't know if any of these coots are old.
I expect to paint the background and leave the foreground pretty much as is shown, here.
The drawing of the face will probably change a bit, as well.
