In Full Swing

In Full Swing    8"x9"   oil
This was a mannequin painted in a color like bittersweet chocolate and the sculptured ponytail made for a beautiful shape to paint. It was up on a pedestal with ceiling lights creating a warm glow on the walls. Together, it made for an image I couldn't pass up.

Wow, this picture looks so 1960's retro! Love the dark value with the yellows.

Great subject matters you have selected Mary - very unique! Have you collected any yet for home props?
Love your color palettes too.

A wonderful composition. I had to open the thumbnail of this painting on another blog. Love you work, especially the figurative pieces.
