6"x6"Oil on Board
It's good to be back to painting again! Not that it was easy! I lost count of how many times I wiped this off and decided I wasn't going to paint it! Each time I wiped it away, though, I'd see the underpainting and it would draw me back in. The hardest part of this was trying to get color that would work for the skin tones. I am happy with what's happened around her face that way. I have painted this subject two other times--the first one I tossed, the second I still have (posted on Feb. 13th). It was interesting to compare it with this. This one is so much looser!
