The original image, Félix Nadar in Gondola of Balloon, Nadar [Gaspard Félix Tournachon], photographer [French, 1820 – 1910].
A young girl in an orange dress and cap with pink ribbon looks over her left shoulder. She has a pink pillow tucked under her left arm and is positioned in front of a plaster wall done in blues, indigo, and black.
It appears I am not done with this lovely just yet. I was unhappy with Portrait of a Girl #2, so I decided to revisit it. Instead of a revision, however, I ended up creating an entirely new piece. The background is drippy plaster that has been rotated and colorized. I love working with complementary colors, and blue and orange is a favorite pairing.
