Woman With Purse #116 Tommy Cheng Painting
48 x 24 in (122 x 61 cm)
Portrait of a lady in a teal dress, clutching her purse and bending forward. The colors here are so carefully delineated, giving the painting a very modern, clean feel, almost like a cutout. On the back of the painting Tommy Cheng attached the reference photo that inspired this piece.
