Mystery in the Box

Oil on Linen 24″ by 18″

Because of the insect-like hand gesture, the underpainting for the skin was selected to be green! This green peeks through at various spots such as on her forearm. (The green background, oak chair, and blue dress also influence the skin tone.) Although painting the numerous tiny flowers and the several layers of glazing was time intensive, I believe the result was worth the time.
