Ellie as the Model - original oil portrait painting by Connie Chadwell.

You know how sometimes the model doesn't show? And the drawing group participants have to take turns being the model? I hate that. Sigh. Oh well, I always dutifully take my turn - even though it's not my favorite thing to do - and the bright side is that you get a variety of models in one session. Here's the result of one of those poses. I worked very fast on a 7 x 5" panel. Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

I love it. Great simplicity of skin tones, and the hues are appealing.

Hello Connie, This portrait is exceptionally beautiful. The quick spontaneous brushstrokes with the muted colors is most successful; very well done.
