Mugshot "Red"

Sheryl was fun to paint.  I started with a bronze metallic underpainting. I've been doing that recently for some things.  Works great with landscapes.  I think that it helped to capture some of her "fire"!  This one just came off my brush.  Doesn't happen often but, gosh! doesn't it feel good when it does?

WOW! - the underpainting seems to be working great, you managed to get such a firy color in the hair without it being too red. Great!
