Artist's description:

This was a second portrait of Ruby. It was painted from life, over four Saturday morning sessions. The goal was simple, to capture on canvas, Ruby's enigmatic beauty. Much time was spent, capturing the wonderful range of hues and values of Ruby's skin colour, ranging from dark oranges to violet tinted highlights. For the background, I added in a much darker and bluer scheme than existed in the set up. I allowed myself to work much more abstractly here, playing the skin tone hues against the background hues, to harmonise the overall colour and value composition.
