"Russian Princess" WIP

Getting back to this portrait, today I have added a black background and added more white to the dress.  After not seeing this painting for a week, being on vacation, I was very pleased she actually looked like I wanted, Russian.  Did not want to start in on the flesh colors this morning due to time, but will tweek that starting tonight or tomorrow.

Russian Princess Portrait on the easel

Been working on this portrait for a couple of hours.  Laying in colors but trying to keep it simple. First time I have used linen and not canvas.  I was going to change her hair color to brown, but may keep it as it is, sort of a flourescent orange red.

Companion Landscape

Since I had two of these panels, I created a second companion piece to the first Summer Tree.  I guess this would be Fall Tree...
