This painting is about eating disorders. The scan is not good. It makes the oranges look neon.

It was a yellowish underpainting with strokes of green made from ultramarine blue and cad yellow in the grass. The color palette is pretty basic, just cad yellow, cad red, ultramarine blue, black, white, and yellow umber I think.

Very creepy....considering these paitents actaully compare their ribs-to-sight ratio and cheer each other on when they "overcome" another diet-ahnialation (argh, so not spelled right)....
The imagery is very dead-on with the disorders themselves...very successful illustraion.

This is so clever and so scary...which is amazing considering at first look it seems so relaxed with the warm colours and the way her hair blows gently in the wind...just incredible :heart:
