Red Skirt - Basque folk costume, figure

Red Skirt              oil on linen             8"x 10"
 My niece was again the model here and I actually had more of the chair and background in, but I wiped out some for correction and the more I eliminated..... the more I liked the figure and the red skirt. So, I kept it simple.

  6. Mary, I like the composition, how it flows from top to bottom and your sure handed brushstrokes.
