Nude Turning Away - original oil painting


This model never really relaxed into the pose, which is very unusual. Because it takes about five minutes for a model to lose her initial "enthusiasm" for the pose, I always fool around with my supplies for about that long, just waiting for her to relax. I could have fiddled around all evening and she would still have kept this difficult, twisting pose. She was remarkable and I hope to be able to paint her again.

The painting is 7 x 5" on Gessobord. Thank you for stopping by!
