Painting #67 - Polo Hats

My friend sent me a photo of these ladies when she went to a polo match because she knows I have been in a 'hat' mood.  Suddenly I have a hat series going.
Friends are so thoughtful and this was fun to paint.

This is one of those paintings where paper made all the difference in the world and is actually the second painting I did.  The first one was on Aquarelle 125# and turned out so bad I had to redo it on different paper.  
This one is one Strathmore 140# and the paint did exactly what I wanted it to do unlike the Aquarelle paper where the paint just sat there.

On to the next painting.

It's very beautiful. We just watched a series on jockeys, they showed the women at the Kentucky Derby and the hats they wear are outrageous but fun to look at!

Teri, I really like the colours and the way you have caught the perspective!
