Lying Around Portrait - Finished

Here is the finished painting. I really loved painting these girls. Everything just seemed to knit together easily. Of course, having a great referenced photo helps. I love the rose petals scattered around. They are the little extra that makes this portrait special. I also used a fairly limited palette of mostly warm reds and cool pinks balanced with blue and touches of yellow.

13 x 15 inches painted on Arches 140lb. cold press.
