22" x 15", watercolour, 1998

I'm quite happy with how the satiny texture of her gown turned out here. A couple of years after painting it, though, I realized it would have been much more interesting (especially since all those skulls are just sitting there in the background) to have her holding a torch of some kind in her raised hand as though in a cover for a mystery novel or something. Next time...
