An image of a woman hiding behind a curtain inspired this painting. I wasn't happy with the way it was progressing so I wound the fabric around her neck. The pattern is part stencil and part freehand. Once it was dry, I added a thin layer of cold wax mixed with French Ultramarine Blue oil paint which brought out the depth of color.
