Painting #24: Geisha Casting Shadows



I went to my friend Michelle Walker's studio Tuesday evening where we set up a still life to paint. Michelle painted this in oil and I did it in watercolor...2 very different paintings. My watercolor is 11" x 14" and is painted on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper.

Stunning! I love the colors and the way you handled the shadows and light.

Hi Sherry and Mary...thanks for the wonderful comments ...Sherry - I wasn't so sure about mixing the warm and cool greens, but it did seem to work out. Mary - the cast shadows were difficult on this - thanks for noticing them.
