Just a quick mention of a portrait I painted recently. It’s of a young woman in a green turtleneck jumper the neck of which is pulled up over her mouth.
The vibrant orange of the background in this portrait goes so well with the green of the jumper, there are hints of the same orange in her brown hair.
The painting is a mix of acrylics and soft pastels. I really like this combination, nice intense colours plus a bit of texture.
The weather here has been decidedly chilly of late, as you would expect in December, a thick chunky knitted sweater is just the thing to keep you warm, covering your mouth is optional!
