Goddess Diane 11x14 oil on canvas by Leslie Newman

Diane  11x14 oil on canvas by Leslie Newman
This is a painting of a famous Goddess, Diane. I did this as a challange two yrs ago, and I am very pleased with how this turned out. I used a limited palette as you can see. I used Titanium white, Dioxazine violet, and cadmium yellow deep. This was fun to do. I sketched her outline and then created several different mixes of the white and purple. From the lightest light, thru to the darkest dark, her image emerged. The deep yellow is the perfect compliment for her statue's color . She has her beloved canine companion next to her.
