Aubrey in Tutu

I know that some of you are going to faint that I finished two paintings with my art group yesterday and started another! It is such a joy to be painting more regularly again! I wanted to at least get started with the underpainting of Aubrey in the Tutu. After seeing a watercolor portrait of a fellow WcW member's granddaughter in a tutu, done in sepia, I knew that was how I wanted to do this. I remembered her portrait as being lovely done in monochromatic sepia, which I love to use anyway!

Since I am so proud of Aubrey's lovely red hair I have never painted her in anything other than living color, so this will be something different.

For some reason I think that beautiful red hair is going to shine through even in sepia.

Looking good, but I might do everything but the hair in sepia and then let the hair shine :)

Rhonda...I finished adding all the darks and it was looking like a promising portrait, then I completely goofed up the right ear and then destroyed the paper while trying to fix it. So, unless I can manage to put a rose over her right ear, this one will go right into the round file. Sigh
