Lady in a red hat

A friend asked me to paint something special for a lady who’s birthday is coming up soon. Her house is quite nautically themed and I’ve been dying to paint a big red hat! So we’re doing it. The canvas is large and it gives me the opportunity to work with fat, broad strokes and thick applications of paint. Yummo!


With the base work done it’s easy to see where I’m moving with this. It also helps to create a nice, solid background to do the shading on. I love working with bold colors and the contradiction of red and blue is giving me the tingles!

Here we are very, very close to the finished product. A few more small touches and I am done!
