22" x 15", watercolour, 2001, private collection This painting is an attempt to loosen up a bit and not be so blendy and smooth. It looks pretty good in her neck and right arm areas, but I may have used a bit too much indigo in the flesh tones, making things a bit muddy in her lower jaw and her hand that's holding the glass. What looks like a second signature in the bottom right is actually an abstraction of a book title on the shelf on which Ashley is leaning. On top of the shelf (with the burgundy and beige cover; barely visible) is an excellent film noir movie poster book called "Crime Scenes". In the top left is a painting from my Sunflowers series.
