stand up to sit down

6x12" oil painting on 1"deep wooden panel.
When the model couldn't make it to our last portrait session, a fellow artist stood up to the occasion and sat for us. : ) 
I went for a high key palette (very light, like pastel colours) and really thought a lot about adding greys.

I just went for it with the glass jar (see detail below). I'm super happy with the brush strokes. I really tried to just respond to what I saw. Now... to keep painting this loose. Hmm. ; )
I really do like turquoise with pink and orange.
