a spanish lady


as i have said i have several paintings ‘in action’ at a time, to avoid creative boredom, and here is another one of those:


The Spanish Lady.

i started out with a collage made by my wife, transferred the ‘subject’ to a fairly large canvas. then i under painted the back-ground, the flower, and her dress in white, added the yellow and the ‘shadow-lines’ in the flower in red. here i am aiming at a more detailed, ‘photographic’ result in some of the details in the painting, and a less detailed, more expressionist, broad result in other parts of the painting. let’s see where it takes me.
