Ladies in Waiting

I've been working on the painting.

It's difficult to photograph this beast because there are so many color things happening and the camera can't deal with it. In reality the blue face is a very deep turquois, nowhere near the neon cyan in the image above. The contrast is also distorted – the actual painting has a lot of ultra brights and ultra darks placed right beside each other to give an illusion of depth, and the photograph isn't able to record any of that. Things are watered down and mellowed out, while in reality they're far more distinct.
