Mable in Mauve

Mable posed for me one day not long ago in her second favorite sunspot, and I was able to get several photos.  She looks so tranquil here, just about to close her eyes. 

I was working with a range of brownish mauves in this painting, using mostly the cad red left on my palette from the previous day's Tangerine Tango challenge painting, and ultramarine and prussian blues, mixed with unbleached titanium.  I especially like the more intense pinky-mauve around her nose, and the one brilliant highlight in the lower part of her right eye.
