Ringed in Sequins

Final, I think, on this painting of Robin V in a red tutu. Photographed in a blue tutu, I called an "audible" at the drawing board and went with red. The lighting was what drew me to this as a possible painting. 24x30 oil on panel.

Simple, beautiful and kind of mysterious.

Thanks Steve. It was a difficult one to photograph...I could use some tips from you perhaps on how to shoot dark paintings without a glare/sheen.
