Marie Lou, the redhead
This is a portrait I did last summer in the main parc of Sherbrooke, Jacques Cartier parc. I confess I like readheads - they are an interesting challenge for a painter. Auburn hair could be quite difficult to paint... Toulouse-Lautrec has a few portraits and nudes with "The Englishwoman from Dover" (the legend says he was totally in love with that one...) Myself, I didn't have the time to fall in love - and neither did I have the inclination (being shamefully monogame - almost 26 years of marriage with the same woman...) but I liked her. Technically, no different than most of my stuff... I should maybe change the materials...?
