Ruth

Oil on 12x14" panel.
When I showed my Client the below version of my portrait of Ruth they felt it was not colorful or lively enough, which I understand. We had agreed to approach the painting process this way, first creating a monotone, then some color and finally more color and thicker paint. Commissions can make you work differently, taking new paths to learning.
