oil 12x9 inches

Yesterday I had the rare opportunity to paint from a live model. The set up had it all: great color combinations, and a quietly confident young lady with high cheekbones and a beautifully long neck. I used the Zorn palette which I absolutely love for figure painting. The room we were in lacked good lighting. At home later I made some adjustments, mostly warming up shadows. There's SO much to learn about painting people! The more I learn, the more I find out there's more to learn. It's all good.


  1. Wonderful Karen! You are right, there is so much to learn...I think it is half the fun!!
    Happy Easter!!

  2. Wow - to be able to go from the colors of the previous one to this Zorn palette takes a lot of talent. You did great!
