posted it here as a study. A while later I played with it some more, and changed the background to a deep purple. Today, I pulled it out once more, and officially finished it. I toned down the purple background a bit, and I think it works.
This is Brigitte, 7 x 5 oil on Raymar cotton canvas panel, available for $150 (unframed) to anyone who might be interested. Just drop me an email!
