My last live model painting of this year. Kitty this time. We were supposed o work on this painting 2 saturdays in a row, but I was finished after 2 hours.

I kept the bottom half unpainted, the white is the gesso, to emphasise the head. The purple was chosen as contrast to her very white hair (the real background was bleak grey).
I was very pleased with the portrait, and so was Kitty.

Acrylic on fireboard, 40x60cm.
