Keeping Warm

7 1/2" x 22 1/2", watercolour, 2001, private collection

Part of my limited Red Shifts series, this painting deals with the colour red representing warmth and comfort and features my friend, Karen, as the model –and also features some nice contrast that I seem to keep going on about. I tried to keep the background dark to evoke being cozily wrapped in velvet –rather than evoke being surrounded by fire (which would be too warm).
