Paula and her sneakers again.

This time I panted her directly without pouring. I used a very limited palette: burnt sienna, cobalt blue and yellow ochre. I also washed her face with cadmium yellow and winsor red. There is tad of alizarin crimson on her lips and the shaded side of her face.

I prefer this painting but my husband prefers the poured version. I did a better job with her face here. But I agree with Stephen that the colors are livelier in the poured painting. It’s tempting to do a third version, but I think I”ll stop here.
