I did the same lady in acrylics on 30th September last year. She has kept her hair colour, which seems almost to be her trademark. This is a pastel painting. I tried to use blocks of colour in a similar approach to some of my recent acrylics. I also wanted to pull the hue of the cushion into the flesh tones and for once I managed to get all the figure in and at the same time fill the paper.
