A large hat

Another life portrait session. This is Anne; she wore a very large flaboyant hat, and had a nice delicate face. Goal was to paint without linework or preliminary study; just go for it, using large brushes with dynamic strokes.

I am the most content about the second try, below the first painting. Both took about one hour to make, acrylic paint on paper 50x60cm.

It has been a while since I visited your blog and the boldness in your choice of colours as well as your brushstokes is now striking.
