Work in progress

Painting patterned drapery... Let's just say, I found the hardest way to approach the drapery in this painting, which was putting in the pattern then painting around it. Later of course I realized the best way to do it is to paint the drapery without the linear pattern first then add it later. Regardless of the method I am enjoying this painting. Something about the subject matter and colors feels very comfortable and calming.
