Japanese Girl


I've been working on this for the past few days. I found a picture a while back of the costume being worn in this painting and thought it looked beautiful and would make for an interesting part of a painting. At the same time it would be a good challenge for me because I struggle with value and color range when I paint whites. So using this as an excercise I gave it a shot and here's where I ended up. I'm not completely happy with the whites (as I expected, I guess I need more practice). But the overall feel of the image I'm happy with.
