Cheryl on a Gold Sofa - original oil figurative painting by Connie Chadwell

Here's another one of the paintings with robe and fan.  It's still so wet that it's difficult to phtograph.  On Gessobord, it's 10 x 8".  The painting was done from a drawing from life - really just a quick little sketch.  I did a bunch of these and didn't want to drive the model completely crazy, so I drew many fast little gestures, then we went on quickly to other poses.  Much easier for her with the frequent changes of position.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Sold
