Amanda Scott is an artists’ model and a fellow painter, I met her in Portland. I painted this piece in my transition from pastel nudes to oils. I struggled mightily with oils, I tried to use the same technique as I had on the pastels and failed miserably.
My breakthrough happened when I limited my palette to five colors. Amanda hates this series. “It’s the color of shit and blood,” she says.
