03: first hit

I've decided that I'm going to make a red painting . . . that happens to have this figure in it lol. This is from a photo of Le Moulin Rouge in Paris (2007) and other tourists are caught in the frame: I have no idea who these people are. The big figure has her eyes closed but I really liked how vibrant her red dress is (it has a lovely pattern on it . . . I like to paint patterns ;)). There are a few other figures in the painting who are going to act as counterpoints. Not sure what to do yet with the building in the back ground or the lightpost on the right side of the frame.

Three other paintings come to mind:
Edvard Munch

Mark Rothko

Henri Matisse
