Arting it again

Have just finished this, having suddenly realised last week that I didn't need to buy red velvet to paint a picture of it, because I had a perfectly good red velvet dress in my wardrobe.

This is just a photo of the painting as it's in oils and still wet, but will probably scan in once dry. I've also cropped it so the ragged edges aren't visible.

It's not perfect - I think it still relies a little too much on the way it's draped to suggest it's velvet, rather than the actual texture, but the texture is getting there in parts.

(see this entry for a reminder of the reason I'm drawing red velvet in the first place)
