Portrait of a Lady in Red

I missed the in between steps, so this is the first and last of this particular portrait. This is the same young woman I painted before 5"x7" based on a vintage photo circa 1957-8.

I have been working sort of fast and loose for a while, and I would consider these interim, small pieces a sort of limbering up exercise. I am looking forward to doing some larger pieces soon, and exploring a new direction with my painting that will build upon these little portraits.
