Hell to Pay

11" x 17", watercolour, 1997

Red looks really weird in jpegs and on the Internet in general, so this painting (as most do) looks much better in person. I wanted to play up the vengeful expression on her face by making the black and red areas flat, but the red ended up looking kinda like velvet, which is a pretty cool conceptual contrast if you think about it.

The gun is actually a water pistol I've owned for many years and it showed up later in this painting (and maybe a few others --I don't even remember anymore).
