I forgot to post my blue and orange girl

I have been taking Alisa Burke's online class, "Color Your World", and I must say the whole class with her photos and examples are a work of art and eye candy galore. I have been a bit behind on the homework because of going to IAMPETH but I did paint her right before I left. She is a study in complimentary colors. I put her on Flickr so it might be that you have see her. But anyway, I meant to post her last week. She was fun to paint and I actually think that if I had not taken Sharon' class in Technicolor Faces I might not have had the boldness to paint her in these colors. It was fun. I love painting faces.

She is gorgeous. First thought I had was Andy Warhol. (I hope you love his work as much as I do.) He'd have loved this. Your faces are always gorgeous. I love how sun kissed she looks.
