This painting has grown out of many many layers of acrylic paint. The woman is wearing a yellow jacket with padded shoulders and carrying a clutch purse. Her red hair is in brilliant contrast to the yellow energetic background. The lower red background abounds with interesting brush work and contrasting hues that show off the yellow jacket. This is thick acrylic paint on canvas and has a high gloss varnish that brings depth to the painting and shows off all its lumps and bumps. I love this piece. The canvas edges are painted and could be hung unframed.
