Backward Glance - original oil portrait painting by Connie Chadwell

This painting was sort of a difficult pose to paint, I think, but I'm pleased with the outcome.  It's from a line drawing that I did and for the life of me, I can't remember who or where the model was.  Scary!
This painting is 8 x 10" on linen.  Thanks for visiting my blog!

Hi Myra and thank you! I love to use the oil bars on top of the painting. They can have such a soft effect. I can use them on oil paintings since they are really oil paint and will dry. As much as I love oil pastels, they don't dry exactly the way oil paints and sticks do. Oil sticks are great to draw with, too!
