A Little Pout - original oil nude painting by Connie Chadwell





The model was wonderful and I loved her pout. She wasn't angry at all - she just had this great expression on her face.

I painted this from a drawing that I did in a life drawing group. Maybe it's just me, but I think it's easy to get hung up on one area when not drawing from life and then end up killing the painting, so I tried to go quickly. Hope I didn't overwork it!

This painting is 7 x 5" on Gessobord. Thanks so much for dropping by Hackberry Street Studio!
