Rouge, a pastel portrait painted at the Palette & Chisel in Chicago, Illinois

Rouge, 12×16, Soft Pastel on Board, 12/17/2011

Here is a 4 1/2 hour painting that was done at the Palette & Chisel in Chicago. The lovely model was reclined on a chaise and was intensely gripping the corner of her supporting pillow. It has a strong feeling of passionate anticipation. She’s looking across the room towards something unknown. She has tussled blonde hair and is laying on a striped, gold fringed pillow which she grips in her hand. She’s wearing a bright red top and on her delicate wrist is a small black bracelet.
