THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Muchachas Painting features two different women, one of them facing the viewer and the other facing away. The woman with her back turned has her hair wrapped up in different colors like red, green and blue, while the woman facing the camera has her hair wrapped in a red scarf. Leaves conceal the most private areas of the women while they each hold different varieties of the leaves themselves. The woman on the right is covered from her chest down to her wrists in a red garment, and the blue background contrasts against the colors of both of them.
