This painting continues work with a modified Zorn palette.
I planned to do this by substituting Ultramarine Blue for the Ivory black in the palette however I soon realized that the ultramarine had too much warmth or reddish undertone to effectively create the dress.
The dress is Cerulean Blue based.
Lois is 85 years old this week. The painting is based on a photograph taken a few years ago.
You can also see that I'm experimenting with another background. It has some unifying effect because it was made with the blue and Yellow Ochre in several layers.
Happy Birthday, Lois.
