Studies of a Red Coat

I started out with the very rough, high energy sketch of the model today, just to get the intensity of the red coat, orange pants, vivid flowers and her pose.

The rough sketch was a 30 minute quickie.

I followed that with the more refined, but still very loose, painting. We'll have this model, this pose, for two more sessions, which will be plenty of time to explore ways to approach this painting.
