This is a painting done from a sketch. I know the waist is too narrow but for some reason it works for me. The artist lurking behind the easel was added to keep back and forth action going in the piece. The blue and orange compliments add energy.
I was asked to add an anchor to this painting. My initial thougt was to leave the white background. I added the line near the wrist after. Im still tempted to work on it but I should probably step away from it and leave it fresh.
