Oil on Gessoed Masonite Panel, 11"x14"

I meant to paint this lady abstractly but ended up painting her this way. The intent, though, freed me up from being too careful like I often do when I paint real objects. The hands are the most difficult to paint. It took me a few hours to find out what I did wrong, but ended up learning a lot from the mistake. Looking at this now, I think I need to add just a touch of yellow orange to bring the right hand to life, which I'll do in the morning.

If you're interested in this painting, please email me. Or visit the Daily Painters of Arizona to see many more wonderful works. My website contains works in the last few years. 

Thank you so much for looking.
