Sunbather II - oil figure painting


This painting is still so wet, but I posted it anyway. I did it with a limited palette and I was experimenting with mixing greys, as well as working on foreshortening. It's 6x6" on gessoed hardboard. Thanks for looking.

What a great idea to paint something that makes us want to plan our next beach vacation. The movement and brush strokes gives the painting a vibrance. Pat

After looking at your dancers, I can feel the music. Your paintings are jewels. So much movement and feeling in each one. Found your site from Brad Bisbey. Wonderful wonderful work.
