This painting was a nice change of pace. In an attempt to be looser, I decided to paint really BIG for a change, and I wanted a subject with lots of color. I found these silk kimonos in the back of my closet. Oddly enough, this photo makes the center kimono look pink (it is white!), and the overall picture appears darker and less bright than the painting actually is. Not sure why the photo colors aren't true --I'll have to look into that.
