Painting Karen W

Hi Matt, I hope you are well! So I have to say in many ways I feel like this is my first real painting. Mainly because I did it from life and it developed into a personal statement of sorts. Part of that is in the construction of the painting that started with a wash of Alizarin Crimson. I used the Zorn Pallet and was amazed at the beautiful colors I could get. I then painted over the Alizarin and purposefully wanted it to show thru in spots. I wanted a humming or glowing effect to be just under the surface. I purposefully wanted the fold in the flap to be the focal point, did not soften all edges as I needed your input, for example the closest edge of the heel, not sure about that. I left some areas unblended as I needed to stop here and breath and get feedback! Thanks Matt!!
