Pre-Raphaelite Sophie lll


Oil on Board, 5" x 7 1/2" , $125.00 SOLD

I was excited to be able to finish this painting
today. It certainly helped that it is not very
large. I'm finding it harder and harder to find
large enough chunks of time in which I can really
concentrate.

I know you've seen this kimono before. But I
really like it. I tried to turn it away from a real
red this time, although it does not come through
in the photo. It's more like a coral. What I like
about the picture are the pearly tones in her skin.

I once did a painting of her (this is my daughter)
where I made her face pink and green like a nautilus shell.
I think I'll post it, just so you can see it. I was very happy
with it. Someone bought it a long time ago, so I don't have
it anymore. But I do have a picture of it:
