Colour Conscious

Oil on linen: 30 x 40 cm  11.75  x 15.75 ins

The model here is Parisian Portuguese, not Asian, and she recently went to a traditional Indian wedding so she had this colourful sari in her wardrobe and chose to wear it again when invited to sit for this costume pose.

The colours were exciting with lots of gold and shine and complimentary contrast and the jewellery and embroidered fabrics were rich in detail but I wanted to keep it lively and loose and not overwork it too much.

I’m pleased with the face which looks animated and alive, almost as if she’s saying something…and its a good likeness too which doesn’t always happen!
