Allie in a Green Dress
The final in the series... I want to enter this one in a show so I've priced it pretty high. After the show I'll more than likely drop the price, although not too low because it is an awesome painting. The Old Holland linen canvas really does seem to make a difference when I paint portraits. The surface is so receptive, compared to the rougher weave of cotton, which usually takes a few coats of paint to become smooth. I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out although I may lose the flower because it is not doing anything for the composition except pulling the eye away from the focal point.
