Portrait of Lee - original oil portrait painting by Connie Chadwell


This painting is based on a drawing I did in a life drawing group. I loved the model's pose, but I concentrated on her face, rather than the whole figure. Upturned faces are such a challenge!

I just love green, especially in skin colors. And with green, ya gotta have red. So I did Lee's skin in a little exaggeration of green with some red.
It's on 6 x 6" Gessobord.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
