I had a different approach to this piece. The model was positioned in such a way that I could see her back, her reflection, and everyone else painting behind me in the mirror. So I pulled my glasses down and with my terrible eyesight I painted what I saw - masses of formless color. After about an hour I put them back on detailed the figure a little more to bring focus where I wanted it.

I was really attracted to Dana's reflection and the cool greens and blues it gave off. I've been looking at Impressionist artwork recently so that definitely helped shape this painting.
