This is my second Angel painting and my first painting of the New Year! She's been in the works for several months, but I finally finished her. I think the bluebird has something to say!
The flesh tones were developed with a new flesh-tone palette I'm using based on Michael De Brito's paintings (and technique) featured in the January issue of The Artist's magazine.
I also had a love affair with blacks and browns while doing this painting. They really are amazing colors.
Happy New Year.
