This is an oil sketch ...an idea for a "real" painting. If I follow through I will undoubtedly change the color of her top. I used only the paints I had left-over on my palette from a previous session and when I saw the red and pink together I thought of the Rajneeshees, an 80's cult in Oregon. As part of their "religious practice" Rajneeshees wore only reds, pinks and oranges (all together). Ugh! I imagine they liked being able to recognize another Rajneeshee from a block away, but it really wasn't a good look.
