Blue Sash - original oil pastel figurative painting

This painting is done from sort of a different perspective - the model was sitting on a 50's low chair and I was sitting on a stool. She was lying back in the chair, too, which lowered the pose. Usually, the model is on a stand. She seems a little more vulnerable this way - not what I intended, but there it is. SOLD

On Ampersand Pastelbord, this oil pastel is 10 x 8". Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Connie,
I really like the pose here because of the vulnerability aspect - aren't we all defenseless at times? The pose works well from a composition aspect also and, of course, the work itself is exceptional.
Take care, stay warm and happy painting,

Thank you Cyndy - I appreciate your take on the painting! As far as staying warm, though, it's pretty tough here lately with these 20 degree nights.
