Kristin in Gold
I like the challenge of posing a reclining figure and avoiding awkwardness, especially when it involves a lot of foreshortening. Usually this means distorting some of the proportions. In this case I made the legs smaller, and slightly exaggerated the upper body, hopefully achieving more naturalism. On the right I added the metal patch to the wood floor boards as a counterpoint to the angle of her hip.

Truely remarkable Charles. Bravo!
(Did you hop on one foot while painting?!)Because I don't know how you could make it more of a challenge.
Oh, and I must say, this woman is Beautiful!ReplyDelete
an other great painting, what kind of brushes you use?, I notice that all this paintings are very small. I like her purple lipsReplyDelete
Just beautiful! She looks like my wife and I am constantly drawn back to this piece.ReplyDelete
