Color sets the stage for the emotions, mood and vibes in a painting.  In this case, Lucinda is a character who would have a strong personality. A complex combination of boldness, loud, joyful, confident, playful and overall benevolent young adult.

I took time to make something with my hands and some gouache paint today. It is always a grounding experience to push color around with a tiny paintbrush. This image has been in my head for a while. I tend to wait to start a piece until I have figured out what the most effective medium is to tell the story, and I don’t always know where the story may end up. The way I see it though is that the most important part is just to start.
