    1. Thank you for the kind words. I used thalo green with lots of white and found it not too difficult to control. I liked carrying this color through to areas of her skin and the background.

  8. I like this lady so much.
    She tells her story by this pose and expression and colors.
    I thought about her victories also (the fringes of her chair look like the hanged victims)))
