War Bonnet - Sgohi by Ruth Andre

"War Bonnet - Sgohi"

This painting, "War Bonnet - Sgohi", is  #10 in the "War Bonnet" series. I have to say the painting took many turns and I thought it was done at one point before my morning break. The painting was mostly red at that point but after returning to my studio I started painting once again. Then I threw the studio windows open and enjoyed the quiet breezes as they drifted through the studio. I think the painting is telling its own story about the day and has made for a, "A Painting Day".

I think you are right, Ruth. I can feel the breezes from your open window clear over here!

It does give the feeling of the wind blowing across it. Really nice contrast between the red and the lighter shades.
