Delia Again - original acrylic nude painting by Connie Chadwell


Today's posting was painted from one of my life drawings. Since I wanted to paint quickly, I set my timer, turned on the thriller I'm currently listening to while I work, and in a few seconds, was totally engrossed in the protagonist's latest frightening situation. Involved as I was in that scary stuff and having completely forgotten about the timer, I almost freaked when it went off. So glad nobody was there to see that!
Every now and then, I like to get my acrylics out and get to work - I like that it dries so quickly and somehow, I just feel freer when I paint with acrylic. For me, it's as much a drawing medium as a painting one. I've had to explain that idea more than once when I've submitted an acrylic drawing to a juried show.
This "Delia" is 12 x 9" on board. I love it that you stopped by my blog - thank you so much! SOLD
