Pure as a Lover's Desire, Evil as a Murderer's Dream

22" x 15", watercolour, 2002

I thought I had posted all my paintings featuring Ashley, but here she is one final time as part of my Red Shifts mini-series.

Her dress is really black and white (as in the bottom half of this painting), but I changed it to white and red for the top half to reinforce the idea of purity –while still trying to evoke passion with her expression. I changed the colours of that dress in exactly the same way for Corona Solis (november) about two years earlier.

The title is a line from "Cut to the Chase" by Rush from their Counterparts album.
