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.
