Red Hat Ladies 2 ~ complete

It took me as long to complete as to get started but it's done. I do need to clean up the right edge on the hat of the lady in the foreground, though. I just noticed that but I had to snap a photo while the light was right. It's been so gloomy here. The painting was actually finished yesterday. I'd like to say this one fought me all the way but I think a lot had to do with my mind set. I'm 'winter weary' and it shows in my work. I'm a moody artist, it seems and it's a fight to stay in the mood to paint at the moment.

Second image: made the corrections to the hat, added some Quin. gold spatter to the BG and signed it. Done!

This turned out beautifully! You are becoming a master at Portraiture. 452 gultis

Thank you, Anita. :) Truthfully, illustration board can be very a point. Just enough so I could correct many mistakes. I am far from mastering portraiture and have newfound respect for portrait artists.
