"red hair and big sunglasses"


This is a really fun change from yesterday.  I did this painting quickly, even for me.   I wanted to focus on color and the loose brushstrokes without over thinking what I was doing.  I wanted to keep the figures loose and just enough detail to translate. It almost has a "vintagey" feel to it....like an illustrated ad from years ago.

 Have a great weekend! I am headed off to ski the rest of the weekend away in West Virginia!  :)
