The Model in a Dark Robe - original oil pastel figurative painting
This sketchy piece has made me so happy because I feel I got her skin tones correct. Lately, I've been working on skin tones and trying to pay a lot of attention to getting just the right hue, value, etc., and - yippee - I have a good feeling about this one! Am hoping to turn this into an oil painting, but whenever I attempt such things, something is lost - will keep trying, though. Am I alone in having the problem of losing the feeling of the original when trying to move it to another medium? On Strathmore 403 oil pastel paper, about 11 x 8". Thanks so much for stopping by.
