Purple Haired Model (sensor yourself)

What do you do when you show up to life drawing on a cool rainy winters night in Laguna Canyon and the model has purple hair? Many of the artists in the room made her hair brown, an easy fix. I decided that the attractive model had purple hair for a reason and what would the great painters of the past have done. So I decided to paint her with her purple hair (with streaks of blue and pink). Anyway, it made for an interesting exercise with the bright pink robe. When attending open session life drawing sessions you never know what you will get. You always have to make the best of the situation often omitting tattoos and pierces. In this case the painting turned out sweet although probably not easily marketable.
