I started this painting over a month ago and initially it was going to be in full colour with the dress being a stunning gold colour in beautiful shiny satin fabric.
However, when I started my monotone underpainting, I couldn't stop and it just looked lovely in sepia.
A splash of red for her shoes and Voila! and completely different outcome as planned.
I have another painting which is nearly completed....and proving very difficult!!! So hopefully that can be uploaded very soon too.
