Nude Impression - original oil pastel figurative painting

There's nothing I love to do more - artwise - than oil pastel nudes - just completely lose myself in them. It's done quickly and 'recklessly', so that I don't lose the flavor of the model, whether it's done from one of my drawings or directly from the model. As I painted this one that I did from a life drawing, I decided that no matter what other painting or drawing I do each day, I'm going to do one of these, too. (Maybe I'll actually stick with this resolution.)

On Stonehenge black paper, this painting is 10 1/2 x 11". SOLD

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Connie,
Your figurative pieces are so incredible - I agree, though, that painting nudes is one of my favorite subjects. And this one has so much life - the color is fabulous.
Thank you for allowing me to "tag" your blog. So here's how this works:

3. Tag 7 other bloggers at the end of your post and comment on their blogs to let them know they have been tagged.
I have put a permanent link to your blog on mine as a thank you and because I really do admire your work - I want everyone to see it!
Thanks again,
