A year to think about it.

This year's Golden Triangle Museum District paint out starts September 5. I started this painting during last years event. My daughter graciously posed for me so I could try to do a figure plein air. I liked the composition but just could not get it where I wanted it to go. I started another painting last weekend (see below) of my daughter from another photograph from the same setup. Blocking in that larger piece (16x20) that is cropped up close helped me figure out how to finish this one. I think I was struggling with the graphic versus impressionistic even back then.

Not sure if you've titled this painting yet but I suggest "Red."

Are you talking the small painting or the large one? I was thinking "Reading at the Metropolis" for the smaller one. But I am always open for suggestions.
