Another Lady with a Fan - original oil pastel figurative painting by Connie Chadwell




This painting is from another of the drawings that I did of the dancers in San Antonio. It's 7 x 5" on Pastelbord. Even though I do occasionally use my oil pastel sharpener, it's a challenge to work on small paintings with an unsharpened oil pastel. It forces me to work loose.


The weather is so wonderful here in Texas - at least for now - that it's hard to do anything but stay outdoors. My flower beds received most of my attention today and although I have lots of paintings in various stages, the roses kept calling me. Maybe tomorrow I'll do some more painting. And again, maybe not.




Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful work...regally poised, but very feminine...I say, go to the roses they are well worth smelling :-) Nina

Hi Nina - and thank you. Yes, the roses are wonderful - it's great being in the garden while it's still nice and cool here!
