               The dress has deep red in addition to the previous colors. The background was done wet in wet with the addition of hookers green in the ground area. I kept working on it till it was dry to get in all the details starting with the brown grey for smoke, indian yellow at the core of the flames, orange in the area around that and deep red in places.

  1. Your attention to detail is inspiring, the free-flowing colours’ stark contrast to calmness in the woman’s persona is astounding and the spiritual references, beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing your work!
