I'd taken a bad photo of this one but liked the dark blurriness of it all and adjusted accordingly. I was nearly able to complete it wet on wet, something I'm enjoying a lot, but this is a water miscible oil and wants to dry faster then traditional oil paint. One trick is to cover w/plastic wrap (and keep painting far from portable heaters).


  1. This is a beautiful study. The curve of line, color, shadows-She is fully realized yet fresh and interesting.

  2. Thank you, Elena. The temptation to darken entire lower portion of back is getting to me so you might just see her again.
