Rachna’s Portrait – Completion Work
Full Canvas (2.5x3feet)
Detail – top right corner
Detail – foreground
Girls – Rachna’s mom wants me to complete a painting that Rachna had started a couple of years ago. Its a self portrait. I am going to slowly start working on it, but would really really like to have you both give me some pointers on how to do this.
This looks like an early work of hers, and I wonder what was going on through her head when she started painting it…
Perhaps we could leave the parts that she painted (esp her self-portrait) untouched. With the background too, rather than impose any of our ideas, we should just fill in the outlines that she has drawn. Yeah?
There is a little pocket watch in the foreground. And a pair of reading glasses that I think are hers in the mid ground. 3 playing cards – King, Queen and Joker – in the top right corner and a checkered pattern on the floor that is drawn in perspective.
I’m all ears…
