This is an interesting pose to paint and definitely requires a model - no memory painting here. It's a long way from being finished, but I look forward to working on it and seeing how it ends up. Using Strathmore Mixed Media paper - my first experience with this heavy paper and I like it. Thanks so much for stopping by!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
