Just for Fun
William Merritt Chase was an American painter who lived and worked a hundred years ago. This painting is based on a composition of his but I have totally changed the girl's features and made her 5-6 years younger. I experimented with a limited palette consisting of titanium white, terra rosa, cadmium yellow medium, alizarin crimson and ultramarine blue. It is amazing the number of colors you can mix from just a few primaries and white.
