Another Girl at the Bar - original oil portrait by Connie Chadwell


This is a quick portrait where I actually set my stop watch, so that with any luck, I wouldn't kill the painting. I used a single primed linen board. There's just something about that surface that I love - it absolutely screams for looseness.
The painting is 10 x 8" - thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

You did get a loose, fresh painting. It's lovely, Connie.

Incredible what you are able to do in a quick painting. This is so fresh. I love it.

Perfect! (From one painting killer to another!)

Lovely study Connie, interesting to hear how you force yourself (with a stopwatch) to ensure they stay loose, but obviously it works! petergander.blogspot.com

Thanks so much, Elizabeth, I appreciate it. Freshness is always a struggle for me.
