AW-015

15" x 11", watercolour, 2002

This is one of the many paintings of Ashley Winning I have done over the years. They've become so numerous that I've resorted to numbering them, as I have with other series which are more or less variations on a theme. I've done a few other small paintings Ashley in that same spot and in the same top (but this is the only one of that group without her wearing glasses): AW-016 and AW-025.

I usually block in shadows and dark areas in my figurative paintings with violet and it looks like I may have gone a little too heavy with it in her face, making it look like she's been boozing. Still, it's a good likeness of her.
