High Lights

This was a difficult painting for me.  At the Guild we were asked to use a limited palette, similar to Ned Jacobs.  As a colorist, I wasn't sure I could get the vibrant colors I like.  The palette was chrome yellow medium, Windsor Orange, Alizarin Crimson, Cobalt, Ultramarine Blue and black/white.  I had to add turquoise! 
I couldn't find the original reference for this painting, but I loved the colors in the headpiece. I can only guess it is a Polish.
