Sophia, 20"x16", oil on linen

I partially toned the canvas with a mixture of transparent oxide red and viridian diluted with paint thinner and let it run freely. Because I used a canvas with rough surface, I had to thin the mixture with much more paint thinner than I usually use. I used this loose appearance as a background and built the structure of Sophia's head on top of it.
