"Dot Silhouette"

High fashion, as inspiration for this painting.
The polka-dot contour could bring to mind a dramatic silhouette advancing, covered in a flowing mantle, and wearing hip-high boots. The silhouette takes up the whole canvas with its imposing presence, and it is set against a contrasting background - the delicate white dots stand against the vigorous strokes of saturated color.
I left the black-and-white silhouette somehow unfinished.
A very large, minimalist representation of a red flower, placed above the chest area of this shadow figure, completes my depiction.
