Sinthy - oil portrait painting by Connie Chadwell


Sinthy - I love that name - held the pose for about an hour, but I stopped before the hour was up because I didn't want to "kill" the painting. Plus, my board is only 6 x 6", so I didn't need much time. I just made lots of strokes while mainly looking for values. I am happiest when working quickly and then moving to another spot in the room to do a charcoal figure drawing from the same pose at another angle.


This painting is on Ampersand Gessobord. Thanks for stopping by! SOLD

Divine.. good thinking to stop at this point! The tilt of her head this close up gives it such a nice sense of intimacy.
Beautiful

Connie, this is really great. She is luminous, and your brush is so expressive. I am consistently amazed when I visit.
