Nude in a Red Skirt - original oil painting of a nude

This painting, which I did from a charcoal life drawing, is still so wet and shiny, but I hadn't posted in awhile, so here is what I did today.  It's 14 x 11" on canvas.  I thought about making her skirt less red, but the model was wearing red, red lipstick - in fact, I have a note about it on my drawing - so I just decided to make the skirt and the lipstick as red as they were in person.
We got rain last night - so no dragging the hoses around tonight.  Such a relief - I am so grateful!  More time to paint, right?  Thanks for stopping by!
