Hello guys!

I am starting a portrait of my gf since V-day is around the corner.
Finding time to paint is tough as I started my brand new job in marketing, which is exciting, but when I get home I am often a little too tired to paint.

Anyway I can't decide on the background colour, so I need help with that.
I also want to make it clear that this time around I did not trace at all, so my lines may be a lot different from the photo. The photo itself looks a tad distorted to to me so maybe that is a good thing!
