A start

This is the painting I started yesterday. Everything about it was disappointing me..but today is a new day and I see that it has possibilities. I meant for that scarf to be super-red. I lost the color relationships I set out for. I'll wait for the whole thing to dry and revisit it another day. It is a start. I may or may not finish it.

Looks like the personification of the word 'autumnal" to me - sweet and melancholy. I will leave it to more knowledgeable to address the question of values.

Wow, I'd be pretty prod to call this a finished piece. And you did this in one day? You are a very skilled painter. Please do more to this girl. I wnat to see you work magic with the red. Maybe a day with snow will lend you the light yo need?

Thank you for your visit.

From what I've seen of your "solutions" to difficult paintings, you'll find a terrific way to resolve this one. Keep going!

My immediate reaction is, the red is perfect as is, since the subject is sad.
