Okay, so I'm experimenting with a few subtle changes here.
This painting is all about things travelling visually north and south. The bluey purpley background is all vertical lines. The posing of her body is straight up and down.
One change is the flower garland. Instead of being the weightless free flowing decoration as it has been in other pieces, this time I decided to make it weighty and hanging straight down. Her hair, instead of dominating the composition by leading the eye in every direction is subtle and pinned up with a tiny pearl.
Overall I'm very pleased with this piece, I hope it does well at auction. You can find her here:
