Greta is Blue

6x6
acrylic on cradled panel

I wasn't sure what I wanted to paint today, so I panned through the older challenges on the DPW site and found this one..."The Limited Movie Star Challenge". As instructed, I used Manganese Blue with some purple and ultra marine blue for darker value shifts. Thank you for visiting, unlike Greta "I don't want to be alone, I just don't want to be alone".

    1. Thank you for saying that. I did feel a little intimidated by her pose. I don't think that would be MY Facebook profile pic!
