Private Collection, California
I've wanted to paint this image for some time, making several drawings on the subject since June. The composition is a simple complementary harmony of the figure's warm golds and reds juxtaposed with the cool blue and green outside the window, and all built upon the darker notes of her skirt and the cat.
Below are photos of three of the drawings, in reverse chronology.
