visiting Sapelo Island back in June I met a new friend, Rosie. She was happy to have visitors and welcomed us all to her porch. I had taken a few photos of Rosie, and this one just seemed to say 'paint me'. So I used it as my resource for my final Fall 2012 Advancing Art Class painting.
The majority of colors are shades of grey: blue grey, orange grey, green grey. There is only splash of orange (rug, planter and some fur), and a bit of light green from the plant. All of these colors were created from a palette of Winsor & Newton red, yellow, blue, and orange.
