Martine, thank you, I am a fan of your beautiful paintings too.

Mona, the colors in this piece are stunning. When I think of your other portraits, I think of blues, earth tones. I guess that's why I did a "WOW!" when I saw this image just now. It's got that powerful portrait quality.

The reference photo is super beautiful, Mona!

The veil looks so rich!

I love the colors you're working with. Just something about all those reds!

Deb and Dean, thanks, I do love painting this veil. It's an Indian wedding veil I bought about seven years ago, just because I couldn't resist it.

Mona, what a gorgeous, gorgeous photo! I can't wait to see the finished painting.

Hugs,
Kathleen

Thanks for sharing Mona. I've been behind and am only now catching up on my favorite blogs. This is an exciting work! I love the extension of colors in the roses and veil.

I agree, the graphite drawing is fantastic on it's own!
