Two figure sketches in oil

"Forty-Five Minute Nude"
8 x 8"
oil on canvas

Surprising no one, I went to figure painting last night. Instead of attempting another in-depth depiction of this pose,  I did a couple of sketches. The first one took 90 minutes, the second 45. I tweaked both at home this morning.

I'm nothing if not predictable in my painting-ways, though I prefer "consistent."

Beautiful skin tones on these sketches. Very nice!!

Also, I'm impressed you have no paint on your beautiful scarf! :-)

Thank you, Linda! I'm a pretty neat/clean painter - the problem areas are usually my hands and sleeves.

There is an honesty to these fast studies which an artist will recognize , can only be accomplished by a master painter. Skin tones are wonderful.

Thank you, Julie. I so appreciate that!
