Flo, version 2

floballet
Revisiting my illustration of Flo. This one is based on the real colours at the time. The wall is gold, the settee is blue, her top was dark green. The previous illustration of Tom was a palette of my imagination. I wonder whether I am too literal at times and whether I should be abandoning reality far earlier on in the process. What do you do?

Elegant and adding colour has made this a gorgeous portrait. I like the tilt of the head.
And the masthead is better - more chaotic and real - not like the 'granny' one you had! Oops, sorry, that was kind of nice but...

Ha ha - Wendy you're right as a masthead it really didn't work, my excuse was I was short of time and having an autumn masthead was getting a tad embarrassing at this time of year here.
