Lantern in Crimson

Here is an oil painting I did for class.  Its done as a monochrome, and I picked Crimson as my one hue.  I really didn’t want this turning out to look like Valentine’s Day merchandise, so I took extra effort to use as little white paint as possible.

As you can see, I’ve not lost my thing for lanterns.
