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.
