Girl with Red Dress

Girl with Red Dress painting by Regina Lord

12 x 24, acrylic on canvas

I think I have been working on this painting for over 8 weeks now. Mostly I just stared at her trying to figure out where I wanted to go with it.

At first, her face was much more flat, her dress a plain red and the background was solid blue.

If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s that I don’t do simple very well. It needed texture, depth, complexity.  It took me so long to figure it out, but I am finally happy with how she turned out.

She is all ready for the studio tour. Maybe someone will fall in love with her and carry her away (after leaving me with a good sum of money, of course!).

    She looks great sitting in your blue and red chair! If I may make one small suggestion; I think she needs a small, simple dark necklace to complete her outfit. (but that’s just me.) Good luck with your studio tour.
