Seated Model - original oil figurative painting


I finally got around to finishing this painting.  Not totally satisfied - always like the sketch better, but at least it's done.  It's almost as if I've been on vacation from my blog - and I have, sort of.  But always sketching and trying new things, such as some gorgeous aqua-colored paper, that was SUCH a disappointment to me; at least, a disappointment in the way I had intended to use it.  So, am exploring other ways to make it work.  This piece is on 14 x 11" Fredrix paint board.  Thanks for stopping by!

Connie - I think you did a good job...her skin is like porcelain...nice one!
The artist's critical eye sometimes trumps the true good work.
Hope you are having a lovely summer.
