Garden Figure

Garden Figure         16" x 12"       oil
This is a change of pace in both size and subject. I had fun painting this costumed figure (Alicia) in an outdoor pose. I changed the setting to match the feel of her costume better. I may re-post the photo tomorrow if I get a shot with clearer edges. It's always frustrating to photograph those darks!

A splendid character Mary! I'm crazy about the brushstrokes in the skirt and scarf. :)

I like the natural pose and the color combinations.
You make it look so easy Mary.

This is lovely. Your costumed model is so interesting and your energetic brushstrokes make this painting very Russian! Beautiful job, Mary.

Nice and painterly as usual, Mary. I especially like the cool greens and reds.
