Portrait Practice - original oil portrait painting by Connie Chadwell












Here's something I did on Saturday afternoon. The drawing was done from life and using the drawing as a model, I painted this very quickly, with a limited palette, as a practice piece.
As much as I like value changes, this one doesn't have a wide range of values - kind of soft. It's probably good to do something different for a change. It's 5 x 5" on Gessobord.
Thanks so much for visiting!

A nice loose sketch. I like the Another Girl at the Bar. Lovely skin tones. Are you painting at the bars a lot? Want company?

Hi Bill. Glad you like them. Yeah, I do tend to hang around the bars and always appreciate company. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
