"Red Slumbers" (sleeping woman-mujer dormida)

Recently a friend suggested me to make a painting with dominant reds. Some sketches later, this is want came out of it. Using the usual magenta imprimatura for the shadow tone, I only had to paint the midtones and highlights in the body. The red ground is actually a mix of magenta, cadmium, vermillon, a bit of yellow lemon, and some burnt umber for the shadows. Yes, sometimes there is more to red than plain red.

price: 65 euros (88 US dlls aprox.) plus shipping.
