Clara Van Fossen

Lately I've been painting shades of lipstick I would love to be wearing myself but when I start looking at the colors offered in stores, they seem to fall short of "perfect".   I have never been drawn to the more "natural" or subtle shades, that is for sure!

Vivienne, great portrait and te right shade of lipstick is So essential. Funny, back when I painted the figure a lot more I was always concerned with the nail polish!

I love this portrait Viv... it's great!! And, I love strong lipstick color too... but it gets tricky as you get older. You don't need too worry about that yet. ; ) ox Barbara
