I'm having a lot of fun with these portraits - creating imaginary stories of moments in their lives... This one was done on a black ground. Something I've seen others do but hadn't yet tried. I painted paynes gray (oil) on the panel and let it dry a couple of days. It was still tacky when I began painting. Kind of a weird sensation.

Does not seem to matter how you do it or what you do it always looks just great well done Kim.
The dark underneath has given this painting a lot of depth and being the colour of moonlight, a lot of mood - like the longing to dance with that special someone. You've captured it all Kim.... a lovely painting.
I am so glad you're having so much fun with these, because I love seeing them! They are so, so lovely Kim. And I adore your imaginary stories. Fun :) You have totally nailed the look of moonlight here. I can't believe it! And her expression! Perfectness. :)
(someone just told me I use too many exclamation points, So I just had to go back and edit out about a hundred in this comment. he, he, he)
The color choice has me intrigued Kim but it works as a portrait and to suggest a mood...great job!
Ralph - Thanks! I do plenty that are crud you just don't get to see them all : )
Thanks Alice and Dana. I was really trying to get a mood so I'm glad you feel it.
And Crystal - Thanks!!! lol. I've had to catch myself as well and am sometimes guilty of adding too many smiles : ))
Awesome work, you are brave, what a nice challenge and what a nice job!
Great job on all three of these portraits...very expressive!
