oil on linen panel 12x9 inches
Here's my study from Tuesday night's figure painting class. The head scarf and long earrings added interesting elements to the pose. Behind her were shelves with various objects. With only about 2 1/2 hours painting time, I included just a couple of the objects so I could use my time to bring the face to a fairly finished state. Still feeling my way through color mixtures, this time I tried using burnt sienna and altered it as I saw shifts in value, color and temperature.
