I wanted to go in a different direction than the last one, which ended up sort of subdued color-wise and more polished than I usually lean. The bright color's in Donna's costume wouldn't allow for subdued colors, so I was attracted to this setup. I felt like it was a perfect opportunity to try out the Reilly palette with a Russian Impressionist technique. Generally pretty happy with this one- need to clean up a few edges, but that always seems to be the case!

Plus, Donna's got a great face and a wonderful personality, so she was a real joy to paint.


This one veered kind of old-mastery due to the muted colors. I wasn't setting out for that in the beginning, but it started to lean that way so I tried to follow it.
