On My Easel, Another View of Linda - original oil portrait painting

 
 This is one of the trickiest poses, and I don't think I've completely succeeded, so will finish it tomorrow - and will, among other things, darken the left part of the canvas.  But I'll be working from drawings, since the model won't be here and that's such a challenge!  Oh well, no one ever said art is easy!  It's 10 x 8" on archival canvas board.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Just my opinion but I would put it away and think about reworking it later. I like it as is.

Yes, it is a hard pose. You don't really see the face, yet you have to portray the "expression" or feelings or character of the person no matter. I think you've done well.
