Sketching Me, Painting Her

oil               8"x 10"

Our group of artists has been getting together to paint, encourage, and motivate each other. Often we paint outdoors (en plein air) but when the weather started turning cold and rainy we moved indoors taking turns meeting in each others homes. This painting was a challenge for me because of the split focal points. What to focus on?  The shiny, elaborate samovar or my fellow artist-friend Marci? I tried to tone down the samovar and use the cooler colors on Marci (contrasting with the warm colors of the room) to draw the eye to her.
