Beautifully done Karin! The face tells many stories quietly!

Love her challenging stare (but I'm not going to challenge her). I will have to try the paprika ground.

great color! I love this series and was selfishly hoping they would all be auctioned. Think what a great book they would make!

Loving this series Karin! Your style..... Also stole your paprika ground idea a few months back and am really enjoying what it does for light and skin tones. Looking forward to November in HH!

Wonderful! You always handled the brushstrokes and colors so well! I have loved painting on different colored, intense grounds since starting with pastels. It is so much fun to see what happens on bright grounds!
