Red apple

The green cloth, and the expression of the model, reminded me “the Red Guards” during the Culture Revolution of China. I am not that old to see the real “Red Guards”, but I saw their pictures when I was kid in China.

It is difficult to paint people’s hands if she is keep moving. I added the table, apple, and the chair by imagination, just want to get better composition. I am not sure if I add more apples will looks better, how do you think?

When I take the picture of this painting, I cannot avoid the reflection from one side corner, so I changed the picture to a monochrome painting to see it, it has less effect by the refection. Because the painting is bigger (18 x 24)? If any body has any idea to solve this problem, please let me know.

I am going to China tomorrow for about a month, but I will have my paint brushes with me, so I will keep posting my work on my blog if I can find a good internet connection in Kunming.
