Julia in Red, oil on canvas, 16x20.  This photo is not quite the latest, as I have had to remember my way to a good likeness of the model and so it is somewhat of slow study.  This is largely done from a life sitting, and then colors worked afterward but without advantage of a photo.  But I had sketched this model other times so I knew her face, just not quite at this angle. I like the model's pose here and think I capture the relaxed sitting.  I tried to keep the "alla prima" quick study brush strokes as I worked on it at home.  I also like the bright colors of the robe with the full blue background.
