PPF #4 v.2

This is the wip I posted last week for PPF#3. In fact I had considered it "done" but Carla Rey   was absolutely right when she said "Just look at that determined expression. I think she has quite a strong personality, and that you might find yourself drawn back to work on her some more. You might be done with her, but I sort of doubt that she is done with you."



And yes, here she is looking a bit more contented (her mouth is slightly fuller and has a hint of a smile). "What is the lesson (in this)?"
Working on her next:
I liked her head pose and hair but the colouring was going very wrong. Starting over, keeping the structure.
 I must have been feeling kind of blue as I gave her blue skin and a grey background. She has orangey hair though. Still some fierceness in her.
 Fireflies came from a story I read at Karen´s and the circles from a You Tube video by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.
And now she is a redhead!!!
More on her next week.
I need to find a name for her. Specially since all three have been "her" so far.

Beautiful transformation, Paula. She was lovely last week and even better this week. How wonderful to be in a group of artists who are willing to add helpful criticism. Yay! for Carla Rey! I hope she will help me with my art, too.

I think each time you paint her, your use of paint is becoming freer and more interesting. Very nice!

I'm so glad what I said made a difference. Sometimes my paintings aren't done with me, either.

It's great to see the evolution of your next one, ove her bright swingy hair.

Red is coming along beautifully and the words really add to determined girl. Maybe you'll find just the right phrase for Red.
