"NYC Girl"

8"x10", oil on canvas

This painting is done for "This Week's DPW Challenge: The NYC Lady Challenge"
A reference photo was provided by DailyPaintWorks(DWP).
My main concern for this painting was to give abstract quality to the background reflecting the shape of her jacket and long diagonals created by her leg and the white ruffles, so pulls the viewer's eye to the object which she is focusing.
I used the warm and cool grey palette.

I like this painting the best. I don't necessarily know why though.
