When I first started learnin painting at Lillstreet in 2009, I used take Oil painting classes and I worked on one painting who was wearing black color dress. I could not get the painting complete because the model did not show up on second setting and I had also screwed up by using real black color on the paininting.
In 2018 when I was getting rid of all my old canvases / painitngs I wasn't really proud of, I gave it another try for this one.
Fisrt I finished this painting with only one person in the front and then the person facing backwords to maintain balance.
This piece was accepted in juried prestigious Highland Park (Chicago exhibition) - March 2020.
