Drawn from life, this afternoon.
Mixed media (oil pastel on oil paint) paintings on 12" x 16" canvas.
About these paintings:
I love the impact the blues make against the dark background in the top painting.
I also am thrilled that I've figured out a way to oil paint and still take advantage of the meetup sessions, where oil paint and stinky stuff are forbidden.
This model is as close to an artist's fantasy as can be: able to hold difficult positions for 20 minutes at a time.
I've made some changes to both paintings. These are the most recent versions.
